UpSlope and Women Giving Back
FEB 5 2021
The presence of the COVID 19 pandemic has made uncertain times even more so for a great many number of people across the country. UpSlope Advisors is grateful to be able to contribute and provide support to some of the many organizations doing their best to continue helping those in need during this time. Women Giving Back is one of those organizations. Their mission is to help women and children in crisis, many who are living in shelters, by distributing clothes and other basic necessities to them at no cost. They do this by having a store that consists of clothes, shoes, accessories and more that are donated by the public. The donations are what allows them the ability to provide the items free of charge. Their focus is on those in shelters or transitional programs in or around the greater DC area. Although they are not able to accept clothing and accessories right now due to COVID, they are accepting diapers, wipes and toiletries. These items are being distribute to individuals and families considered vulnerable.

UpSlope Advisors - Your Allies In CMMC Compliance
Jan 15 2021
From now until October 2025, all companies doing business with the Department of Defense (DoD) will be required to satisfy DoD cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) requirements. New DoD contracts starting now could require CMMC compliance. Are you compliant? Do you know where to start? If not, Upslope can offer advice and support.
UpSlope Advisors is an official RPO, or Registered Provider Organization of the CMMC Accreditation Body. Meaning we can provide our clients with guidance, consultations, and recommendations for maneuvering the CMMC system. Being an RPO means that UpSlope employs staff who are familiar with the basic CMMC procedures, provide assessment preparation (but not actual assessments), and offer non-certified consulting.
The CMMC-AB logo on our page guarantees that we are bound by a professional code of conduct, received authorization from the CMMC-AB, and have at least one Registered Practitioner at all times.
Contact us for more details on how we can be an ally to your company in this process.
