RFPs and Needs Assessments for Higher Education
Jon Bonham, Director, State and Local Government / Higher Education
In this blog post, I will be discussing RFP best practices for Higher Education Institutions.

Larry Jones, CEO
I’m pleased to announce that we recently closed on a significant investment from The Carlyle Group and The Chertoff Group – two prestigious investment groups that both have extensive experience in the cybersecurity space.

A huge applause from the NIST-OCR-HIPAA 2015 conference
Andrew Hicks, Managing Principal, Coalfire
It looked like the 8th annual conference may have garnered record-breaking attendance as I noticed hotel staff rushing to add skirted tables and chairs to the back of the room to accommodate a standing-room-only crowd. I guess that was to be expected given the star-studded line-up of presenters including HHS OCR Director Jocelyn Samuels, her brand new Deputy Director, Deven McGraw, and the OCR enforcer, Iliana Peters. We also heard from government officials at the FTC, the ONC, NIST’s NCCoE, and the HHS Preparedness and Response office. The audience responded to each session with a line of people trailing from the microphone set up for Q&A – and with excellent questions, too!
