History of the Institute

The Ignyte Institute was started by Ignyte Assurance Platform’s CEO, Max Aulakh, born out of necessity for advanced cyber research, collaborative and social learning around emerging cybersecurity regulations, standards, and threats against commercial enterprise from small to large businesses.

In collaboration with organizations such as Impact Washington, MEP for Washington state, US Air Force Cooperative Research & Development (CRADA) - the Institute first offered training that focuses on the emerging CMMC standards that are closely modeled after DFARs 252.204-7012 and NIST SP 800-171, but with additional domains.
