Welcome to the second installment of our “From the Phones” blog series. This interview is with Cooper Mooney, account executive at Cygilant. Cooper spends his time speaking to many people challenged with cybersecurity.
IT teams at mid-market organizations financial services are finding themselves overtaxed and overworked, forced to manage constant security alerts and still find a way to use technology to drive the business forward in a meaningful way. It is for this reason that so many are looking to partner up with a Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service provider.
One of the questions that continuously hounds cybersecurity professionals is whether they’re keeping up with the methods and technologies used by attackers. Cybercriminals have made it their business to understand and utilize the latest technologies to their advantage.

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), created by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), aims to strengthen cybersecurity in the supply chain of the Defense Industrial Base. It impacts all companies conducting business with the DoD by mandating contractors to be CMMC certified and seeks to put an end to the “checking the box” mentality.
