In 2016, GovReady PBC received a substantial R&D contract from Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate to lower the cost of cyber security compliance for innovators and small businesses. His company recently released open source tools to do for compliance what TurboTax(R) did for filing taxes.
