Hey, I wanted to let you know that I just won my first Northrop contract. I’m so happy and wanted to thank you and to let the rest of the staff know how much I appreciate your help.
The first recommendation was to ask his prime client to delay compliance, giving Qualitech a three-week extension. Therefore, MTEC had three weeks to assess all Qualitech’s cyber risks following the DOD’s most stringent cybersecurity guidelines, fix a subset of failed cybersecurity controls specified by their client, and provide dates when Qualitech will be in full compliance. Sensing Qualitech’s urgency, the MTEC cybersecurity team developed a plan to turn a typical two-month process into a three-week delivery. Reynaldo had to get up to speed and fully understand the requirements and deficiencies as he only had a part time IT person. There are no short-cuts to being compliant. Three weeks later, after many calls, questions and training, Qualitech submitted the required cybersecurity documentation and proof to their prime client. Shortly thereafter, Qualitech’s client approved them to submit bids for DOD contracts. By the end of November an excited Rey called and said the company won their first contract to the tune of $77,000.00 with Northrop.
