“I’d like to personally thank the SBA’s Branch Chief for Security Policy & Compliance and Office of the Chief Information Officer, and those members of the FedRAMP PMO who supported our interesting use case. It has been our mission to help the small business community that is America's economic engine, and we are looking forward to doing great things together.” said Michael Peters, CEO of Continuum GRC.
The United States Small Business Administration (SBA) partnered with Continuum GRC for FedRAMP Authorization following an extensive period of evaluation of our tool. Their interest was how the tool scaled GRC capabilities to not only the SBA’s internal requirements, but also to the multitude of America’s small businesses they supported.
Major infrastructure in the United States is under attack. As more heavy industrial companies, defense contractors and government agencies increasingly rely on cloud platforms and IT solutions to serve their users and constituents, hackers are finding ways to leverage vulnerabilities and steal information.
The problem with these attacks is that they are taking advantage of the fact that a flaw in a cloud platform can undermine security with a completely unrelated company or industry. As we’ve learned from the SolarWinds hack, the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack and now the LineStar attack, a single flaw in a cloud platform can open up critical energy production and manufacturing operations to being held hostage for millions of dollars in ransom.
Ransomware isn’t just a consumer issue. Here, we cover the state of ransomware in 2021 and how different organizations are responding to the problem.
