With constantly evolving cyber threats and a shifting regulatory landscape, proactively identifying risks/vulnerabilities and implementing appropriate security controls to protect assets poses an enormous challenge to any organization’s IT security program, requiring an immense amount of time and effort to maintain security compliance. Our team has a wealth of experience with both the assessment process and the standards, frameworks and regulations relevant to a range of organizations:
We have the expertise to provide an independent verification and validation of your system—whether DoD, civilian or commercial—to ensure adherence to established information assurance security controls, compliance with established regulations, and eligibility to obtain authority to operate (ATO). We take an approach grounded in the Risk Management Framework that provides a solid foundation for strategic security. Based on your system and requirements, our assessment would involve the categorization of the system or application, identification of security controls, validation of boundaries and interconnection agreements, a comprehensive Security Test and Evaluation (ST&E), support for remediation of discovered vulnerabilities and the authorization process, production of deliverables (e.g., System Security Plan (SSP), Security Assessment Report (SAR), Plans of Action and Milestones (POA&Ms), documentation for the Authorizing Official (AO)), and/or other services.
