Certification Hurdles on the Road to U.S. Federal Contracts

Walt Paley, vice president of communications for SafeLogic, is responsible for strategy, content, marketing and outreach. He brings experience from several start-ups and companies in growth stages, including Nukona (acquired by Symantec) and Bitzer (acquired by Oracle).

At the June event, Paley discussed the landscape of certifications typical for federal procurement and covered FedRAMP, Common Criteria, CMMC and the NIST publications that provide the technical backbone for them. He also discussed the specifics of FIPS 140, NIST's cryptographic validation that consistently delays and derails certification efforts across the board.
