As the recent exploitations of some very well-known companies, i.e. Sony, Yahoo!, OPM, and Equifax demonstrate, no one is immune to hacking. Organizations, more and more, find their worth exists in their virtual data holdings. Securing these holdings is critical to preserving worth.
Nowhere is this truer than the National Security market. Trusted with the country’s most sensitive data, the National Security market has to formally manage its cyber risks. Navstar’s Cyber experts are first and foremost IT experts. They understand the technologies and their inherent threats. They also understand the vision as well as the method to NIST’s Risk Management Framework (RMF) and the IC-specific ICD-503. They expertly guide our customers through Categorization and Selection, documenting the risks
As technologists, they coach development teams and infrastructure engineers through security engineering choices. Navstar’s Cyber engineers can also conduct the verification and validation steps: conducting vulnerability scanning and/or penetration testing of systems and infrastructures. For example, a Navstar Cyber engineer worked with a National Security customer to build a full-lifecycle risk management approach to a key intelligence system. The approach reduced the re-accreditation time by 3-5 months saving the development team time and money by avoiding costly rework.
