SteelCloud LLC announced today the release of “STIGs for Dummies” an eBook to help readers understand the complexities and impacts of STIG (Security Technical Information Guides) compliance. For both government organizations and their mission partners, addressing STIG compliance for RMF, FISMA, DevSecOps, FedRAMP, and now the new CMMC mandates, has always been challenging, especially when these organizations depend on tedious manual processes. Kenneth Hess, the author, funnels decades of experience into a definitive guide that simplifies the many facets of the highly specialized process of becoming and maintaining STIG compliance.


“STIG compliance is a fundamental security hygiene regiment that is the foundation for cyber security best practices,” said Brian Hajost, SteelCloud President and CEO. “STIG for Dummies was created as a resource to help both seasoned cyber professionals as well as the leadership and program managers that support them, to better understand and navigate the intricacies of security compliance. This eBook will remove the fog of the STIGs for anyone that would like to increase their STIG IQ.”

In this eBook, readers learn why STIG compliance has been so hard to achieve using traditional approaches and how emerging technologies can increase consistency, while significantly reducing time and effort. STIGs for Dummies is a valuable resource for both cyber experts and those new to the field especially those involved with RMFFedRAMPNIST 800-171NIST 800-53 and now CMMC compliance.
