Data Can Aid Organizations in Gov’t Cybersecurity Compliance Efforts

Jeff Brody

Insights from data sets have the potential to help organizations in efforts to comply with the U.S. government’s information security requirements such as the Department of Defense Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification program, Federal News Network reported Monday.

DoD finalized its CMMC framework in late January as part of efforts to secure the defense industrial base from cyber threats and said it plans to incorporate the cybersecurity requirements into the contracting process beginning this fall.

The radio station spoke with Qmulos founder and CEO Matt Coose regarding his views on the importance of compliance and continuous monitoring efforts for public and private enterprises.

Coose previously worked as director of federal national security at the Department of Homeland Security. The company he established uses technology from partner Splunk to help customers Qmulos extract insights from huge amounts of data.
