Smithers Announces the Launch of Information Security Services

Smithers, a leading provider of testing, consulting, information, and compliance services, is pleased to announce the launch of its information security services department. This agency will provide auditing and certification services for NIST SP 800-171 and the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), as well as other customized information security offerings.

Smithers Quality Assessments Division offers 25+ years of high-touch, value-added third-party auditing expertise to the CMMC program, including trained, professional auditors to perform CMMC assessments for organizations that are current suppliers to the United States (US) Department of Defense, as well as those looking to meet the requirements of being a supplier.

Smithers' information security service offering ensures the security of clients' sensitive data by delivering reliable assessments on time and with a high level of touch.

"Information security threats continue to intensify as a significant concern to organizations of all sizes," says Jeanette Preston, President of Smithers Quality Assessments Division. "As a matter of business continuity, many companies would be required to ensure sensitive data security as a requirement to do business with defense, governmental agencies, and highly regulated industries."

The information security services department will be launched and led by Aaron Troschinetz, General Manager for Smithers Quality Assessments Division in North America. "During audits, we see that clients have a genuine need for these facilities," Troschinetz says. "Companies do not need multiple vendors because we provide information security in addition to our existing auditing and certification services. Smithers is now capable of serving as their full-service trusted partner."
