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.
U.S. Army Regional Health Command – Atlantic (RHC-A, formerly Northern Regional Medical Command) relied on tiag for comprehensive evaluation and implementation of cybersecurity / information assurance policy throughout the region, and for technological support to remediate security vulnerabilities. Helping to prevent ransomware attacks and protect the Army’s medical network and devices from future cybersecurity vulnerabilities, tiag adapted the Army’s newly adopted Risk Management Framework (RMF) cybersecurity accreditation process in this work to convert sites from the prior DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) to RMF. Delivering cybersecurity solutions, enterprise management and web support for the entire region by hosting the customer’s internet and intranet platforms, tiag also provided services for data analytics, infrastructure optimization and business intelligence.
Supporting the mission of U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) and its Corporate Information Operations Center (CIOC), tiag was chosen for multi-year missions to provide round-the-clock network monitoring, information assurance and asset management for ARL's primary sites around the country. Implementing effective process improvements, infrastructure upgrades and IT solutions for numerous high-profile projects, tiag’s work helped ensure a more secure and reliable IT environment for ARL users and scientists.
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.
Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC) 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.
