The security threats are real. Failure to implement sound security practices, as well contractually-mandated security requirements, can lead to security breaches of internal data or government customers’ sensitive information. Incorporating an effective security compliance program enables you to minimize risk, comply with contract security requirements, and gain a competitive advantage for new awards.
For corporations, non-profits and state/local government agencies that provide solutions and services or otherwise partner with U.S. government agencies, contract provisions and regulations for IT security and privacy are increasing in frequency, detail and complexity. Service and solution providers must demonstrate compliance with FISMA, FedRAMP, Privacy Act, and agency-specific security policies. Many federal agencies require evidence that compliant security programs have been developed, assessed and under continuous monitoring for risk management. Recipients of contracts, grants and other interconnection agreements from U.S. federal government agencies are frequently finding contract clauses that require rigorous security protections and evidence of compliance. Organizations that are unable to meet these requirements are at risk of losing current contracts or the inability to compete for future awards.
SecureIT provides a suite of services and solutions to meet these challenges to help organization determine, design, implement and manage cybersecurity programs that meet the unique needs of the organization. These services and solutions include:
- Readiness Assessments: SecureIT performs an initial review of your organization against its current or anticipated government contract security requirements such as FISMA, FedRAMP, HIPAA, NIST 800-53, OMB A-130, OMB A-123, CFO Act and Privacy Act to identify security risks and compliance gaps. This provides a baseline to aid in deciding upon a strategy and information to aid your organization to determine priority.
- FedRAMP Cloud Computing Services: SecureIT is a government approved 3rd Party Assessment Organization (3PAO) for FedRAMP.
