Leader in security enablement tools for IT service providers will supply critical component for CompTIA Cybersecurity Trustmark


SPENCERTOWN, N.Y., Thursday June 1st, 2023 – FortMesa, a leading provider of security enablement tools for IT service provider companies, announced today it is providing critical support for the new CompTIA Cybersecurity Trustmark program.


FortMesa’s Continurisk GRC (governance, risk and compliance) platform will be deployed to support the new Trustmark program from CompTIA, the leading nonprofit association for the global technology industry and workforce. 


“The work CompTIA is doing in building a scalable cyber credibility model for MSPs and other IT providers is core to the FortMesa ethos and an essential part of rebuilding public trust in outsourced information technology systems – we’re all very excited to support this mission,” said Matthew Fisch, Founder and CEO of FortMesa.


FortMesa’s GRC platform will:

  • Allow CompTIA Cybersecurity Trustmark applicants to track progress in addressing and completing the standards outlined in Trustmark documentation.
  • Be accessible to CompTIA members as they enroll in the Trustmark program.
  • Provide actuarial insights and feedback to the Trustmark program.


“MSPs will be able to measure the effectiveness of their evolving security program as they progress through the Trustmark process,” said Wayne Selk, vice president, cybersecurity programs at CompTIA. “The addition of FortMesa as a Cybersecurity Programs partner and the inclusion of its GRC platform are exciting and important developments for our Trustmark program and for the global MSP community.”


The CompTIA Cybersecurity Trustmark details a clear path for MSPs to achieve foundational cybersecurity hygiene, laying the groundwork for a functional security program within the organization. The Trustmark maps to several control frameworks recognized as industry-accepted best cybersecurity practices, including the Center for Internet Security® Critical Security Controls, ISO/IEC 27001, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) SP 800-171, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), and the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) Cybersecurity Regulation.
