If you want to keep your business, intellectual property, and customer information safe from cybersecurity risks, the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a best-practices cybersecurity framework every manufacturer should consider to protect their organization.
If you are in the defense/DoD supply chain or are considering getting into this line of work, the CMMC will be a requirement for all new contracts and will affect every contract coming down the line thereafter.

The Benefits of a Stable Network Infrastructure
You can’t build a solid structure on shaky ground…the same holds true for your IT. You can’t build the future of your company on an unstable IT infrastructure.
Infrastructure components include endpoints (desktops, laptops, phones, tablets, etc), network (server, routers, wi-fi and more), and data (files, emails, databases). In order to ensure continued stability, all of these components must have integrity, a high level of security and a forward thinking strategy.
