First Authorized C3PAO Announced and Speaking at CMMC Industry Day in Austin

Cloud Security and Compliance Series (CS2)

The first CMMC C3PAO, Redspin, was announced this month and will be featured in one of the first in-person forums (CS2) to discuss the accreditation process.

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On June 9, 2021 – the first CMMC Third Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO) was announced and listed on the CMMC Marketplace. Redspin, a division of CynergisTek, was the first among 156 known organizations aspiring for C3PAO status to pass the full Defense Industrial Base Cybersecurity Assessment Center. (DIBCAC) assessment at CMMC Level 3. CMMC Provisional Assessor (PA) Tony Buenger and CISO Thomas Graham, PhD, CISSP, MBA of Redspin/CynergisTek will be featured in a unique discussion giving attendees one of the first in-person chances to ask questions and glean insights from the accreditation process. This session and many others will be hosted at the Cloud Security and Compliance Series (CS2) conference in Austin, TX on August 3rd.

The announcement of the newly authorized C3PAO comes on the heels of the recent Executive Order on Cybersecurity from President Biden and a Special Senate Hearing on CMMC and Cybersecurity in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). Anthony Salazar was noncommittal during the hearing on the expected final DFARS ruling publication date and only alluded to an approximate November 2021 release. However, this recent development shows signs of life in the program and will likely usher in a series of similar announcements of other C3PAO's passing the assessment process.

Redspin is an ideal C3PAO candidate and was likely selected because of its rich history within the cross-industry auditing community. The company is based out of Austin, TX, and has conducted over 1,000 cybersecurity audits in past years. One of its 100+ team members and a speaker at the upcoming conference, Tony Buenger, sat down with Summit 7 and the CS2 team several months ago to discuss his experiences and practical guidance for meeting requirements within the Identification and Authentication (IA) Domain.

The two Redspin leaders join an already saturated lineup of speakers at CS2 Austin (CS2ATX) that includes renowned attorney Bob Metzger, CMMC AB Board Director – Regan Edens, special expert Jacob Horne, members of the CMMC Industry Advisory Council (IAC), CEO of Summit 7 – Scott Edwards and more to be announced.

About CS2

The Cloud Security and Compliance Series (CS2) is strictly for government contractors and those in higher education research institutions looking to meet cybersecurity regulations, address security threats, and glean best practices for their cloud investments.

CS2ATX will be hosted at Austin's Hotel Van Zandt for the latest stop in an ongoing informational series to cover best practices for CMMC, DFARS 7012/7019/7020/7021, NIST 800-171 compliance, CUI and ITAR data management, assessment preparations, and other cloud security topics.

(Exclusive Video) Iran: MEK Resistance Units Expose Sham Presidential Election, Brutal Candidate

June 11, 2021 - Iran - MEK Resistance Units expose sham presidential election and murderous candidate.

Iran – MEK Resistance Units expose sham presidential election and brutal candidate.

The campaign was first launched by the MEK Resistance Units in April with the slogan “Our vote is regime change” and expanded in May.

Several cities across Iran see slogans written on the walls that read, 'My vote is regime change, yes to a democratic Iran,' 'Down with Khamenei, down with Raisi,' 'no to the religious dictatorship.'”

— NCRI

PARIS, FRANCE, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The nationwide campaign to boycott the Iranian regime’s sham elections continues across Iran. Various segments of Iran’s society, especially families of the victims of the November 2019 nationwide protests, are stressing that they will not vote in the election in honor of the blood of their loved ones, and their calling on their compatriots to do the same in defiance of the Iranian regime’s tyranny.

At the same time, several cities across the country see slogans written on the walls that read, “My vote is regime change, yes to a democratic Iran,” “Down with Khamenei, down with Raisi,” and “A strong no to the religious dictatorship.”

These vast activities have been organized by the network of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) inside Iran, known as the Resistance Units. The campaign was first launched by the MEK in April with the slogan “Our vote is regime change” and expanded in May. The slogans won popularity on the daily basis and echo the current circumstances of the Iranian society that rejects the mullahs’ regime in its entirety.

All around the country, the MEK Resistance Units installed posters, images, and banners to support regime change. In their activities, they call the main candidate of mullahs’ sham elections, Ebrahim Raisi, a murderer who was a key member of the death commission who sent thousands of political prisoners to the gallows in a matter of months in 1988.

In recent days, these activities were carried out in several cities including Tehran, Shiraz, Isfahan, Mashhad, Sanandaj, Semnan, Behbahan, Yasuj, Omidiyeh, Hamidiyeh, Shahin Shahr, Mahshahr, Arak, Dezfoul, Firouzabad, Lar (Fars province), Qazvin, Behshahr, Shahr-e Rey, Andimeshk, Abadan, Marvdasht, Karaj, Nishabur, Khorramabad, and Ahvaz.

Slogans such as “Iranian people’s vote is regime change, yes to a democratic Iran,” “No to the sham elections, no to the mullahs’ rule, yes to freedom,” “Khamenei’s rule is illegitimate,” and “Boycott of Iran sham elections is a national duty” were spread in these cities.

In major cities such as Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz, and Mashhad, the MEK Resistance Units installed, posters of the Iranian Resistance leader Massoud Rajavi and the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) Maryam Rajavi with the slogans “Democracy and freedom with Maryam Rajavi,” “Down with Khamenei, down with Raisi, hail to Rajavi,” and “Our vote is regime change and a democratic change and people’s sovereignty.”

In the days before the elections, the calls for the boycott of mullahs’ ballot boxes have increased. Every day, families and relatives of martyrs of the Iran uprising in November 2019 send video messages calling for the boycott of the sham elections and say, “My vote is regime change.”

Also in various cities, the defiant youth torched and demolished Raisi’s images. These acts have become so popular that Ebrahim Raisi told in a speech on June 9, “I have ordered not to print more posters and instead spend the money on the poor.”

the overthrow of the regime, the regime’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei needs a so-called election to legitimize his rule. And the social outrage toward the regime has raised many concerns among clerical rulers in Iran.

The state-run daily Setareh Sobh wrote on June 8, “Based on the latest poll, after the first presidential candidates’ debate the participation of citizens in the elections is estimated 38 percent.”

Also, the daily Aftabe Yazd wrote on June 8, “The first debate only had 30 percent viewership and the voter turnout will definitely be below 40 percent.”

On June 9, Yadollah Movahed, head of Judiciary in Kerman province told the state-run IRNA news agency, “The amount of propaganda to boycott the elections is unprecedented.”

He threatened any activists and persons calling for the elections boycott, “We will deal very hard with any person or media that accompanies the enemies.”

Khamenei fears a low election turnout. At the same time, he desperately needs Raisi to become his next president. He tries to consolidate his regime to confront an outrageous society. Therefore, he needs someone like Raisi who is known for his merciless and ruthless acts in 1988 by slaughtering 30,000 political prisoners.

Wisconsin Celebrates Men’s Health in June

Communities Across the Globe Honor Men’s Health Month

WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The state of Wisconsin has issued a proclamation celebrating men’s health and fatherhood in June, helping educate men, boys, and their families about disease prevention, timely screenings, healthy lifestyles, and positive family relationships.

Governor Tony Evers’ proclamation can be found here.

The importance of this effort was also highlighted by a statement from the White House.

Raising awareness of the need for men and boys to live healthy lifestyles is critical to their wellbeing. The life expectancy for men is five years less than women, and men also have higher rates of death from cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Moreover, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports women are 100% more likely to visit their doctor for annual exams and preventative services than men.

Report cards on the status of male health in each state can be found at the State of Men's Health website. Proclamations from cities and states be found at www.MensHealthMonth.com

“We applaud officials in their states for helping raise awareness of the health issues facing men and their families by recognizing this year’s men’s health awareness period,” said Ana Fadich Tomsic, MPH, CHES, Vice President, Men’s Health Network. “Communities around the globe continue to promote the health and well-being of men and boys throughout the month of June. We hope this year’s awareness period will help men and their families be more mindful of their health starting with a doctor’s appointment.”

Across the country, hundreds of health care professionals, private corporations, faith-based organizations, community groups, and other interested organizations help plan activities and events that focus on men’s health during June, and throughout the year. On June 18, MHN encourages participation in using the #ShowUsYourBlue hashtag on social media where participants raised awareness about men’s health issues by Wearing BLUE.

For ideas and free resources in both English and Spanish, visit www.MensHealthMonth.org

Men’s Health Month grew out of National Men’s Health Week, which was enacted by Congress. The legislation was sponsored by Senator Bob Dole and Congressman Bill Richardson and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on May 31, 1994.

Men’s Health Month and Men’s Health Week are organized by Men's Health Network MHN), an international non-profit organization whose mission is to reach men, boys, and their families where they live, work, play, and pray with health prevention messages and tools, screening programs, educational materials, advocacy opportunities, and patient navigation.

Alicia Doyle, Author of “Fighting Chance”, Gives Thoughts on the New FDA Alzheimer's Drug Approved in Nearly 20 Years

Alicia Doyle

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The US Food and Drug Administration on Monday approved the use of the experimental drug aducanumab for early phases of Alzheimer's disease — despite an FDA advisory committee concluding last year that there is not enough evidence to support the effectiveness of the treatment. The FDA has not approved a new Alzheimer's drug in nearly 20 years.

Alicia Doyle, acclaimed author of the award-winning autobiography, Fighting Chance, has a personal connection to this disease and believes this new drug is the best next thing to do. "The US Food and Drug Administration’s approval of the use of the experimental drug aducanumab for early phases of Alzheimer's is a step in the right direction to hopefully find a cure for this disease, which not only robs an individual of mental and physical capacities, but breaks the hearts of those who must watch, powerless, as their loved one declines," states Doyle.

The drug was developed for patients with mild cognitive impairment, not severe dementia, and intended to slow progression of Alzheimer's disease — not just ease symptoms.

"My father, Frank Ira Doyle, passed away in Colorado on September 21 at the age of 84 after a successful career as an engineer, a decades-long marriage, and serving his fellow man through philanthropic efforts," continues Doyle. "My father suffered from Parkinson’s and early onset Alzheimer’s Disease in his last stages of life. Witnessing his mental decline was heartbreaking – he was the smartest man I knew, and his time on earth made global history."

It is estimated that there are approximately 44 million people worldwide living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related form of dementia. In the U.S., an estimated 5.5 million people of all ages have Alzheimer’s disease. Of these, around 5.3 million are 65 and older and 200,000 are younger and have early-onset Alzheimer’s disease.

"My father served his country proudly in the Navy, and later earned his Master’s Degree in engineering on the G.I. Bill. A brilliant Rocket Scientist, my father worked for some of the largest engineering companies in the world, including Boeing. During his career he reaped many accomplishments, most notably approving the launch of the Cassini Satellite that studied Saturn and its moons. I hope a cure is on the horizon so other's do not experience the difficulty and harsh realities of this disease."

Master Insight Coach, John Strasser, Gives Thoughts on the New FDA Alzheimer's Drug Approved in Nearly 20 Years

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The US Food and Drug Administration on Monday approved the use of the experimental drug aducanumab for early phases of Alzheimer's disease — despite an FDA advisory committee concluding last year that there is not enough evidence to support the effectiveness of the treatment. The FDA has not approved a new Alzheimer's drug in nearly 20 years.

Master Insight Coach, John Strasser, has a personal connection to this disease and believes this new drug might not be the solution. "As the grandson of an Alzheimer’s patient, I know what it’s like when someone you love can’t remember. Families of people with this deadly disease are desperate for anything that could slow down its progression," states Strasser.

The drug was developed for patients with mild cognitive impairment, not severe dementia, and intended to slow progression of Alzheimer's disease — not just ease symptoms.

Strasser continues, "Most of the suffering that comes from Alzheimer’s comes from an unwillingness to accept the diagnosis rather than the diagnosis itself. For my grandmother, in the beginning accepting her own impermanence was the hardest part."

It is estimated that there are approximately 44 million people worldwide living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related form of dementia. In the U.S., an estimated 5.5 million people of all ages have Alzheimer’s disease. Of these, around 5.3 million are 65 and older and 200,000 are younger and have early-onset Alzheimer’s disease.

"As a professional life coach, I understand the nature of being human, and one aspect of our humanity is avoidance. People constantly avoid. A drug that has been shown in trials to barely help, however, won’t help, and in the end, you can’t avoid it. Even if the drug worked to slow down the effects of Alzheimer’s, it would only slow down the natural process of accepting life. When my grandmother finally accepted her path in life, she stopped suffering," concludes Strasser.

—————

John Strasser

John Strasser believes that life’s too short to keep messing around.

After overcoming a multitude of challenges including alcoholism, homelessness, and a chronic heart condition, just before his fortieth birthday he went on to earn a master’s degree from Columbia University, studying South Asian religious traditions, before eventually creating his coaching and speaking business, Rebel Against Yourself.

By no longer waiting for conditions to be perfect to take action, in just the last year, John has gone from making absolutely zero money and zero impact in this business to making six figures, putting on coaching workshops, speaking to corporations, creating a coaching academy, and even leading clients on pilgrimages through India.

He is grateful to serve you.

Unemployed image by CBS News

The Thinkubator will provide internships and job placement for young adults!

BRONX, NY, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Thinkubator, a bronx-based innovation and workforce development nonprofit organization announces that Robin Hood, NYC’s largest poverty fighting organization, awards The Thinkubator a program grant to support internships and the connection to post-secondary opportunities and/or employment upon completion of the internship. The Thinkubator will focus on helping New York City and in particular the Bronx recover from the economic impact of Covid-19 by placing young adults in a training environment with the goal of employment and/or to further their education. This is a critical program to provide skills or upskilling vulnerable populations and allowing them a mechanism to participate in a meaningful way in our economy and democracy. “The Thinkubator is excited about this opportunity to support the recovery of New York City and to provide work-based learning experiences to young adults ” said Dr. Edward Summers, President and CEO of The Thinkubator. “This funding will support, train, and help young adults transition to permanent full-time work and/or post-secondary educational opportunities. This is critical to helping the Bronx and New York City recover from the impact of COVID-19.”

Robin Hood’s program grant will provide 100 young adults with internship placement, health and wellness support during the internship, academic and career counseling, and support to transition into work and/or post-secondary education. “Coming out of more than a year of distance learning and forced to face the harsh realities coming to light in our city and nation, the youth of The Bronx are amped up and ready to learn as much as they can to make a difference in their communities. The programs at The Thinkubator will give those young adults the tools and best practices to make things happen." says Luna Bella Avila, Youth and Alumni Engagement Specialist from The Thinkubator, who will be spearheading the program with the support of Assistant Director of The Thinkubator, Max Rusike-Griffith, Lead Facilitator and Head of Youth Voice, Julian Joyner, and Assistant to the President, Emily Cacho.

Community partners and business leaders are excited for the opportunity to support the training and direct connection to employment for young adults in the Bronx and New York City. The Thinkubator’s Board Chair and CEO of Johnson Security Bureau, Jessica Johnson-Cope stated “this is the ideal time for Robin Hood to invest in the work of The Thinkubator. The Bronx is consistently overlooked. The program grant will allow The Thinkubator to make an even greater impact on the lives of local youth. Our Board members and community partners are committed to making the most of this opportunity.” “The narrative around students of color from marginalized communities is usually framed as a skills and achievement gap, when it should really be framed as a resource and opportunity gap. The Thinkubator’s students have always shown remarkable grit which has been more evident than ever during the COVID 19 pandemic and America’s racial reckoning! The Thinkubator’s students have persisted, achieved, excelled and advanced. They have ably juggled academic studies, family life and their internships, wherein they’ve created amazing and innovative solutions for local businesses with a global reach. I couldn’t be prouder to partner with Robin Hood to advance the Thinkubator’s mission of powering Bronx youth into the workforce and the world! Said Dr. Lessie Branch, Director of The Think Tank at The Thinkubator and Associate Professor of Business Administration at Metropolitan College of New York.

To date, the organization has served more than 150 young adults with work-based learning experiences, internships, mental health and wellness support, career counseling, and youth voice and provided food insecurity support to Bronx residents. The Thinkubator places young people at the core of solving complex and not so complex business, organizational, societal, and world challenges.

Florida paves the way with new bill allowing virtual inspections

Government entities agree virtual inspections are inexpensive and require minimal equipment

“The utilization of Inspected has been growing as more companies and jurisdictions are seeing the numerous benefits of using our virtual platform.” ”

— Anthony Perera, Founder of Inspected

DAVIE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Over the past year, the world has seen a shift towards remote work, which has ushered in the use of modern technology to accomplish tasks without needing to be physically present. As construction and governmental departments have been deemed an “essential service,” Inspected, a virtual inspection software company, has seen an uptick in permitting and virtual inspections. Florida recently passed The Florida Building Codes Act, which authorizes any government entity with the authority to enforce the Building Code to perform virtual building inspections, except for certain structural inspections. When signed by the Governor, the bill will go into effect on July 1, 2021.

“The utilization of Inspected has been growing as more companies and jurisdictions are seeing the numerous benefits of using our virtual platform. This news out of Florida is another major step towards advancing remote inspections and implementing compliance procedures for the technology across the nation,” said Anthony Perera, Founder of Inspected. “With Florida and other states embracing virtual inspections, we will continue to see others adopt similar guidelines.”

The Florida Building Codes Act defines “virtual inspection” as an inspection that uses visual or electronic aids to allow a building official or inspector to perform an inspection without having to be physically present at the job site during the inspection. The bill also requires local building code enforcement agencies to allow requests for inspections to be submitted to the local agency electronically via e-mail, electronic form, or mobile application, such as Inspected.

Inspected is designed specifically for inspectors to connect with onsite personnel to help achieve a safe alternative to in-person inspections. Inspected keeps inspections moving forward efficiently, creating a dedicated compliance solution in a centralized hub to help promote a safe workplace and focus on the health and safety of workers. Rather than relying on conventional conferencing tools, Inspected provides a feature-rich centralized location for your remote virtual inspections. Our software documents the virtual inspection and provides a standardized and uniform approach.

Inspected offers an easy-to-use interface, removes the need for direct contact, the technology will help cities clear permits faster and save travel expenses, while ensuring an important revenue base continues. For customers and contractors, it ensures projects can continue and removes uncertainty of when an inspector will be able to once again travel to personally approve the permit. A video demo of the new Inspected app can be viewed at www.inspected.com and demos are available upon request.

West Virginia Celebrates Men’s Health in June

Communities Across the Globe Honor Men’s Health Month

WEST VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The state of West Virginia, as well as the city of Morgantown, have issued proclamations celebrating men’s health and fatherhood in June, helping educate men, boys, and their families about disease prevention, timely screenings, healthy lifestyles, and positive family relationships.

Governor Jim Justice’s proclamation can be found here.

The importance of this effort was also highlighted by a statement from the White House.

“I’m incredibly proud to be able to proclaim June as Men’s Health Month in West Virginia and help bring awareness to the issue of men’s health and wellness,” West Virginia Governor Jim Justice said. “Far too often, men try to ‘tough it out’ instead of getting the help they need. But, just like how preventative maintenance on a car can extend its life, regularly going to see the doctor can extend your life.

“We especially need all men to be aware of their health and wellness right now as the COVID-19 pandemic continues,” Gov. Justice added. “I urge all West Virginians to get their COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible. Not only could it save your life, but, by breaking the chain of infection, it could also save the lives of your loved ones.”

“We applaud officials in their states for helping raise awareness of the health issues facing men and their families by recognizing this year’s men’s health awareness period,” said Ana Fadich Tomsic, MPH, CHES, Vice President, Men’s Health Network. “Communities around the globe continue to promote the health and well-being of men and boys throughout the month of June.

Why Small Businesses in Ontario Need Protection from Government

Alternative safe business practices have been provided to Government officials for over a year with no effort to help small businesses stay open.

To be Canadian is to be socially responsible for your fellow Canadian. It is time that we come together as Canadians and help the small business owner that has been treated as non-essential.”

— Edward Henry

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since March of 2020, Edward Henry has worked with health and safety professionals, epidemiologists, business professionals and many others to develop universal standards for safe business practices. It was clear from the beginning that we were not prepared for pandemic. You cannot change an entire way of life and an entire way of doing business without a plan for adoption. That was never clearer than months after the first series of lockdowns throughout North America, and the rest of the globe.

On June 11, 2020, Edward Henry announced that Social Distance Management has launched Social Distance Advisory to provide consistency and transparency to determine the level of vigilance required for safe business practices. Over the next few months, Edward Henry continued to contact many elected officials throughout Ontario to discuss how this conformity system will keep people safe, but businesses will be able open, and have access to the audits, traffic plans, and other resources that were launched to help companies conform to standards of managing space and cleanliness.

Feb 26, 2021, not for profit group (SmALL Business is Essential) SBE Canada was formed to promote safe practices and aid small businesses across North America. The plan was to recruit the right candidate to lead this organization into a better normal.

June 1, 2021, SBE Canada was renamed SBE United. Edward Henry resigned as president of SBE and named Steve Anderson as the new president of SBE United. SBE United will release resources developed by Social Distance Management to the public, including self certification and audits.

Since May of 2020, Edward Henry and his team of employees and volunteers have contacted most of Ontario’s MPPs to discuss the possibility of providing resources to the government and businesses throughout Ontario. These efforts were commonly redirected to several different departments, agencies, and other representatives, but not one of these representatives explored the possibility of exploring alternative methods that could keep small businesses open.

Many of these businesses have been forced to close because of the classification of non-essential goods and/or services, when instead we should have been allowing businesses to operate based on whether they can protect customers and employees while operating safely. Many small businesses have made large investments to become compliant only to discover that there is no standard of compliance. Small businesses have made extensive efforts, using borrowed funds, to meet standards that were set by government, only to be shut down and unable to open for months at a time. At the same time, so called essential businesses have operated for most of the pandemic with little or no oversite or restrictions to their sales, until inspections became frequent, and sales restrictions were enforced during the third wave lockdown.

Ontario small businesses deserved more than a leader who did not lead, and a government that has been inconsistent and overreactive. It appears that the Ontario government was never interested in giving small business the ability to explore safe business practices and the only option for them were lockdowns and vaccines. When considering the effort, the lack of transparency, and the lies from these leaders, it appears that the strategy was to hold the economy hostage through lockdowns until a fair trade-off of vaccines was completed.

SBE United will continue to support small business and promote universal compliance throughout Ontario and the rest of North America. It is also SBE United’s mission to raise the necessary funding for many business owners that continue to struggle after the longest lockdown in North America. Small businesses deserve better than the lies, lack of effort, ambiguity, and resistance that has been provided by the representatives they elected.

Small business owners that are currently struggling and need transition assistance or have experienced closures can register their membership at no cost. Visit https://sbeunited.org/
