I worked with Lori Crooks to build our System Security Plan for FedRAMP at Alation over the course of about 8 weeks. Not only was she extremely pleasant to work with and showed up to every call with positive energy – but she proved to be a deep expert in translating NIST control language into plain English so that our team could scope our follow-up tasks to close gaps. Lori’s efficiency and expertise made a very heavy lift into a pleasure, and I would gladly work with her again.

Elaine Atkinson, Head of Security at Alation

We undertook the FedRAMP certification process for the first time knowing we had a steep learning curve ahead of us. Lori and her team at Security Compliance Solutions flattened that curve substantially, both streamlining the document production process and providing expert guidance on how to adapt our policies and procedures to meet or exceed the standards on which we would be audited. When we delivered our SSP to our sponsor and our 3PAO, both commented that we were one of the most prepared CSPs they had seen in some time. I believe much of our success is due to Lori’s contribution to our submission.
