"Totem’s DFARS/800-171/CMMC Workshop was incredibly dynamic and full of knowledge from beginning to the very end. The instructor, Adam Austin, is an incredibly knowledgeable and approachable person. His insights are simply astonishing. His training gives me a stronger capability to offer United States defense contractors a road map in fulfilling their regulatory mandates under DFARS/800-171/CMMC."
"No disappointments from the Workshop. The presenter (Adam) was accessible, thorough, and knowledgeable. The large amount of information and materials provided ( by Totem and workshop attendees ) will help set a foundation for securing our small business environment."
"Adams approach and knowledge was very good. He helps explain things in a way that simplifies the painful process of deciphering the government lingo. I went into the class completely lost and was able to achieve some knowledge and confidence to begin my journey with compliance."
"The Totem Compliance software had many great features. The document template removed hours
of ground work from the process, and allowed us to create professional-grade response
plans and risk analysis. The controls interface was easy to use, and featured a lot of
useful information which reduced the amount of external documentation required.
Additionally, the automatic creation of a policy document was very effective for creating
the first draft of an IT policy that was compliant with NIST standards."
"I found the workshop extremely helpful and it is undoubtedly a great value for small businesses. CMMC Compliance can be an overwhelming undertaking but Adam did an excellent job teaching us how to navigate it. He's incredibly knowledgeable and I appreciate his willingness to focus the workshop discussions on what would be most beneficial to attendees."
"Mr. Adam Austin is a brilliant presenter for Totem.Tech's DFARS/NIST 800-171 workshop and has a complete grasp of IT & cybersecurity. My understanding of the DFARS/NIST 800-171 requirements greatly improved. I feel more confident meeting these requirements with IT software, tools, and technology. I also better understand the CMMC and the associated changes to expect in the future for contractors processing CUI."
"At the DFARS/NIST 800-171 workshop hosted by Totem.tech, I learned how far my organization is from being compliant with DFARS/NIST 800-171 requirements. However, I discussed with Mr. Adam Austin and the onsite security compliance analysts about the sequence of steps my organization must take to facilitate compliance. Ultimately, I became aware of information regarding DFARS/NIST 800-171 that was previously unknown to me."
"Amazing Veteran-owned small business providing innovative solutions to global customers - also, great leadership team!"
“This is just another example of subject matter expertise and follow through at its best, I’ve been calling the same service number since I was a young SrA out at Grafenwoehr, Germany and this team has never let me down!”
"By attending Totem.Tech's DFARS/NIST 800-171 workshop, I gained a better sense of both the actual requirements laid out by DFARS/NIST 800-171 and the implementation details for such requirements. Mr. Adam Austin helped translate the NIST 800-171 security controls and assessment objectives into boilerplate that was much more digestible for those of us who are more familiar with IT."
