CHANTILLY, Va. (PRWEB) February 01, 2018
EmeSec Incorporated today announced that the company has secured a trademark from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) for its proprietary integrated business process methodology Strategic Measures for Adapting Resources and Technology Systems or SMARTS ™. The SMARTS™ methodology integrates business process technology, organizational learning, change management, and operational sustainability.
SMARTS™ is derived from the due diligence and business determinations that drive small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) today in the compliance world. Many companies have turned to business consulting services to offset some of the costs associated with achieving and maintaining regulatory compliance.
Although EmeSec developed SMARTS™ to support cost competitiveness for SMB customers related to due diligence, the value of SMARTS™ has been in assessing and meeting compliance determinations for new requirements identified in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171, Revision (Rev.) 1 which guides Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), cloud compliance with Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations Supplement (DFARS), and European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
In addition, because of the evolution of cloud and applications, SMARTS™ also addresses decisions related to cloud security and compliance requirements of the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP).
SMARTS™ provides an enterprise look across security and business practices along with supporting documentation, and architectural design without the technical jargon. SMARTS™ is really focused on providing decision-makers with the ability to address security plans to meet multiple compliance standards as appropriate.
Since 2016, EmeSec has been leading the charge in being the go-to expert for CUI compliance emphasizing the #SimplifyCUI philosophy. Extending this approach, EmeSec has focused on adaption of resources and technologies to reduce the barrier to entry for SMBs as compliance becomes one of the larger hurdles to the Federal and International marketplace. Comprehensive information, data and intelligence program initiatives provide revenue protection for their customers.
“We are excited to trademark our SMARTS™ methodology. We continue to help SMB customers with real-world adaption to the fast-paced marketplace that demands due diligence and compliance – including CUI, DFARS, GDPR, and NIST Cyber Security Framework,” said CEO Maria Horton. “SMARTS™ is more than smarts, it is a practical way to integrate the business processes that are physical, virtual, and third-party. This risk-based perspective addresses the coming age of data fluidity which more and more organizations face as they adopt competitive technologies such as AI, IoT, VR, and AR to remain relevant. SMARTS™ is just one more way EmeSec builds customized due diligence for our customers dealing with compliance, innovation, and cybersecurity in a balanced and budget-friendly view.”
This latest accomplishment is another milestone for EmeSec, reaffirming the company’s commitment to help small businesses can adapt, survive and thrive in the cloud environment.
