SmartSimple has Joined the FS-ISAC

As you know, SmartSimple’s #1 concern is the security and well being of our customers and as such we have recently joined the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Centre (FS-ISAC)
This organization was created post 9/11 to ensure that the public and private sectors share information about physical and cyber security threats and vulnerabilities to help protect the critical infrastructure.  The mandate is to constantly gather reliable and timely information from financial services providers, commercial security firms, federal, state and local government agencies, law enforcement and other trusted resources. The FS-ISAC is uniquely positioned to quickly disseminate physical and cyber threat alerts and other critical information to SmartSimple. This information includes analysis and recommended solutions from leading industry experts.

We believe access to this information will help protect our client’s assets and investment in SmartSimple.

After nearly a decade of providing software solutions to the Grants Management market, SmartSimple is extremely excited to announce that our grants management system now contains seamless integration to the Foundation Center’s eGrant Reporting Program.
