LOS ANGELES, June 30, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Ariento Inc., a leading IT, cybersecurity and compliance service provider to small and mid-sized organizations, announced its participation today as a charter sponsor of America’s Small Business Development Centers (ASBDC) “Operation North Star CMMC”. The ASBDC is the most comprehensive small business assistance network in the United States touching over 1.3 million small businesses annually. North Star gives small businesses clear direction to protect themselves from data breach attacks. Ariento provides secure, regulatory compliant information technology (IT) services to America’s small businesses.
America’s SBDC is leading efforts to promote the use of a collection of publicly available standards and frameworks embodied in the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) addressing how organizations should protect confidential information. The CMMC is established by the Department of Defense and has great value across all business sectors. Ariento has been a leading provider of NIST 800-171 solutions to small businesses since its founding in 2014, and is now doing the same with CMMC.
Small businesses are under cyber and data-breach attacks by nation-states, as well as organized and disorganized criminals, who are stealing intellectual capital, personal and business information, and creating havoc in business environments. America’s SBDC provides small businesses with simple CMMC awareness information and a path forward to a more in-depth assessment of their online security. That path now includes solution providers like Ariento that will help them achieve cybersecurity best practices and regulatory compliance.
“This sponsorship is a no brainer. Ariento is leading the way for securing small businesses for some time now and we have the network to connect them to those that most need their help,” said Charlie Tupitza, America’s SBDC Cybersecurity and Data Protection Lead.
“Small and medium businesses represent 99% of all U.S. businesses and employ more than 60% of Americans,” said Bryan Crosson, Ariento’s Director of Business Development. “As a charter sponsor of Operation North Star we hope to help reduce the massive cyber risk that is a constant threat to the U.S. economy.”
Ariento is comprised of a veteran team boasting decades of experience at the highest levels of the United States military and federal government, and specializes in delivering best-in-class technology solutions that are secure and regulatory compliant. From consulting to fully outsourced IT services and more, Ariento gives business owners and executives one less thing to worry about in today's interconnected digital world.
