Cybersecurity & Information Assurance
The federal government faces a number of challenges in the information assurance (IA) domain. These challenges include balancing among the need for Internet and network security; confidentiality; availability and integrity of information and computer-based systems, and testing and assessment of computer-based systems security. Expanding threats to overall information security requires dynamic strategies for providing computer network defense.
tiag has a successful history of providing specific IA services support to include leadership advising, policy development, security assessment, independent verification and validation (IV&V), certification and accreditation (C&A), plan of action and milestones (POA&M) management, incident response, and security awareness training management across the federal government. We help our clients assess, manage, migrate, protect, and share information assets to increase communication, knowledge, level-of-service, and mission attainment.
Our approach identifies the proper balance between being IA focused and providing full functionality to end users—ensuring data is protected and information systems are compliant, while also meeting the functional needs of users.
Army Research Laboratory
tiag’s cyber security team is responsible for operating a 24/7 cyber security operations and monitoring center in support of ARL’s mission. Through our team’s efforts the Computer Intrusion and Monitoring Program within the CIOC has become a certified CND Service Provider (CNDSP) for federal agencies providing Cyber Defense services to over 80 DoD and Non-DoD Agencies, greatly expanding the quantity and type of cyber security services they were previously receiving.
To ensure information can flow seamlessly within the Letterkenny Army Depot (LEAD) community to support the Joint Warfighter and its international partners, LEAD’s Directorate of Information Management (DOIM) relies on tiag for IT solutions and services that increase process efficiencies for multiple LEAD operations and provide a stalwart IT/IM environment for the overall LEAD mission.
Army Materiel Command (AMC) relies upon tiag to provide IA support for all of its IT enterprise application implementations. tiag cybersecurity professionals ensure AMC quickly receives interim authority to test (IATT), interim authority to operate (IATO), and authority to operate (ATO). In turn, tiag’s support advances the rapid deployment of new technology throughout the command.
In service to the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, tiag security professionals provided the full suite of DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) remediation services to achieve an authority to operate for its military network circuit. tiag cybersecurity experts enhanced USU’s security through the hardening of network infrastructure, remediation of security vulnerabilities, and establishment of compliance documentation.
Northern Regional Medical Command relies on tiag for comprehensive evaluation and implementation of IA policy throughout the region, technological support in the remediation of security vulnerabilities, and accreditation of systems and applications through the DIACAP and Army Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) processes.
Walter Reed Army Medical Center BRAC
To comply with the Defense Base Closure and Realignment (BRAC), Walter Reed Army Medical Center chose tiag to migrate applications and systems to the joint medical domain under the Office of the Secretary of Defense. tiag’s cybersecurity & IA experts gathered the system requirements and design specifications, built the accreditation packages, scanned and remediated the systems.
