"Lets Talk Cyber with Synagex"

Synagex's Cybersecurity Ninjas Sit Down with Manufacturers Edge to Talk Cybersecurity and Compliance.

Afraid of compliance regulations? Does CMMC have you overwhelmed?

Allow our cybersecurity experts—or "ninjas" as we like to call them—put you at ease by making cybersecurity and compliance something simple and approachable.

"It's that thing that you just want to delay, postpone and think about it another day... but you guys make it feel very harmless... like it is something almost friendly that you can confront and actually overcome and be successful at." –Jessica Cowden, Manufacturer's Edge

At Synagex, we believe that making IT simple is the key to navigating the complex landscape of cybersecurity and compliance, especially for manufacturers who are increasingly vulnerable to digital threats. That's why we were thrilled to have our very own experts, John and Pete, featured in a recent video webinar dedicated to decoding these critical issues.

"We love talking about cybersecurity!" – John Sinopoli, Synagex

"Let's Talk Cyber with Synagex" is part a new video series from Manufacturer's Edge, Colorado's Official MEP. The webinar features John and Pete, seasoned veterans in the realm of cybersecurity and compliance, as they talk all things cybersecurity with ME's Director of Marketing, Jessica Cowden, shedding light on the importance of safeguarding manufacturing operations against cyber threats, whether for regulatory compliance—or even general cybersecurity best practice.

In the webinar, they covered various topics, including:

  1. Synagex's Own Approach to Cybersecurity Risk Assessments: John and Pete describe how they specialize in taking the complex world of cybersecurity and compliance simple and understandable for someone who is just dipping a toe in IT—so that the businesses we work with can focus on what they do best.

  2. What the Risk Assessment Process is Like: After being introduced to your company, we send a pre-assessment checklist before we dive in to a more thorough assessment, covering any questions and controls that are a part of NIST 800-171 or CMMC requirements—and we'll steer that to ensure accuracy and efficiency where we can.

  3. What Deliverables to Expect from the Assessment: After covering all 110 of the controls, Synagex delivers a SSP (System Security Plan), POAM (Plan of Action and Milestones) and SPRS (Supplier Performance Risk Score)—these are the acronyms describing the documents that contractors will be looking for.

  4. Who Risk Assessments are For: This webinar is manufacturing-focused for requirements like CMMC and NIST 800-171, but this framework is not limited to the defense industry! These cybersecurity controls are important to all businesses and reviewing where your business might be weak when it comes to cybersecurity could incredibly impactful to future success.

  5. The Difference Between a CMMC AB vs. C3PAO: Synagex is a CMMC accredited organization (CMMC AB)—not to be confused with a C3PAO auditor. This means we're not the ones who are deciding if you can do business with the DIB, but instead we are inside assessors that help your business meet compliance goals or produce the necessary documents to proceed with defense contracts.
