necessary continuous monitoring

In information security, many compliance frameworks like CMMC and RMF require what’s known as “Continuous Monitoring” to ensure continued compliance with cybersecurity standards. Continuous monitoring allows you and your partners to assess the compliance and security of your system/network in the face of expected or unexpected changes to compliance standards, IT security infrastructure or emerging security threats.
