"This is a monumental achievement for us and our team worked very hard to get us to this point," said Nolan Smith, owner of Tego. "As an RPO, we are now able to offer additional support for our clients in the DoD space, which already includes industry leaders in Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance and the US Military itself."
The CMMC model is a set of mandatory cybersecurity requirements that all DoD contractors must implement and then validate by an independent third party before contract award. The CMMC Accreditation Body, which is managing the CMMC rollout on behalf of the DoD, announced requirements and opened applications for multiple credentialed roles, including RPO, this summer.
Greg Manson, VP of Security, Audit, and Compliance at Tego, is a Registered Practitioner (RP) who will assist clients with CMMC requirements. With decades of experience helping customers reduce risk to their IT systems and data, his RP status will further enhance client offerings at Tego. "I'm pleased to be part of an organization that is focused on delivering IT and security solutions to organizations across NC and beyond," said Manson.
