Tailored Action Plan

The information from the Gap Analysis is used to pull up a customized roadmap and take your organization through the process toward compliance. These plans are action-specific and also outline the time it will take and possible milestones the organization will achieve along the way towards compliance.


Application of Security Controls

We help with application of the right security controls across your systems. Identification and authentication, system, and communications protection and access control are taken as measures for controlling each point of your cyber-posture according to NIST standards.


Policy Review and Training Audit

We perform in-depth audits of your existing policies and employee training programs to ensure that your organization’s procedures and policies for handling CUI are reviewed and improved, retaining the integrity of your systems and maintaining compliance with requirements. In doing so, we provide detailed feedback and recommendations.


Support and Monitoring Following Compliance

Once we get compliance, continual updates and maintenance support will be done to ensure you maintain that compliance. It will involve regular reviews, management of configurations, and prompt handling of evolving security risks to keep your organization secure.
