InfoTech performs all areas of the assessment life-cycle.
The pre-assessment phase provides a preliminary review of the information system security posture that will provide for a certain level of confidence and unravel potential vulnerabilities and then recommend countermeasures for improvement. The Validation phase provides a means to discover and confirm the information collected. The next phase provides the results of the assessment in a final report which includes the system description/information criticality, and the major findings and recommendations.
We do not rely on technology alone, but utilize our in-depth analysis of your organization’s business model, policies and information technology security framework to design a technical security roadmap customized to address security “warning signs.” We conduct comprehensive security control assessments, and independent verification and validation activities to ensure that the security controls, policies and procedures are in place, operating as intended, and have the desired outcome.
Security Operations & Information Assurance
Keeping the infrastructure of the enterprise is critical to your overall security posture. InfoTech has experts experienced with validating that the management, operational, and technical security controls are in place and implemented in compliance with the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Department of Defense (DoD), and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards.
InfoTech has experts experienced in all phases of the incident response life cycle. Our knowledge and experience provides the tools that allow us to identify, and respond to attacks to your organization. InfoTech certified experts can also perform computer forensics should it be necessary.
Vulnerability assessments are a critical part of keeping a strong security posture. InfoTech experts are able to provide a complete vulnerability assessment by identifying, measuring, and prioritizing identified vulnerabilities. Several processes and procedures are used to give a thorough overview of identified vulnerabilities including the use of automated scanning.
Government agencies confront an increasingly hazardous IT security environment. A well-designed and well-managed continuous monitoring program is a critical part of the effectiveness of the organization’s risk management framework. Continuous monitoring is a dynamic process that provides essential, near real-time security status-related information to organizational officials. Organizational officials must have an ongoing awareness of the threats and the security controls being used on their systems in order to make educated, cost effective, risk-based decisions regarding the operation of their information systems and take appropriate risk mitigation actions.
InfoTech provides continuous monitoring services allowing organizations to execute a defensive game plan for strengthening their security health by better utilizing their resources to repair their security gaps and vulnerabilities. InfoTech experts are able to help you facilitate near real-time risk management. Our experts can help you guard against Zero-day attacks, other threats, and the increasingly numerous cyber breaches and security incidents to assure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.
Technology and e-commerce enable thieves around the world to steal our identities and use them for financial gain or criminal activity. The explosion of the Internet and the popularity of social networks have sparked the expansion of companies and organizations abilities to gather, use, and share personal information.
As a response to the misuse or possible misuse of personal information, state and federal legislation have been enacted. The US is not alone in their effort to mitigate this misuse of personal information; may international data protection laws have been established and are strictly enforced. Interestingly enough, states may have stronger privacy laws than those of the Federal Government, thus impacting any individual or organization doing business with a resident of that state. One of the least understood features of security is the empowerment of state laws; many times state laws are more rigid and stiffer fines are imposed.
Understanding the scope and jurisdiction of the various laws is key to being in compliance. InfoTech’s privacy professionals have the experience and skill sets to understand, recognize and analyze a wide array of privacy issues in a variety of regulatory, technical and operational environments. InfoTech’s experts can help an organization establish and launch their privacy baseline or help established organizations evaluate or assess their privacy posture.
InfoTech will work closely with your organization’s Privacy Office and Legal Counsel to assure that the organization’s business mission is met and the privacy procedures that are in place follows the appropriate laws and regulations.
