Certification and Accreditation

Certification and Accreditation

Recent cyber attacks have placed growing importance on keeping systems secure. The Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA; updated in 2008) requires that all federal agencies develop and implement agency-wide information security programs to safeguard sensitive data. This includes a requirement for the certification and accreditation (C&A) of information technology (IT) systems and infrastructures.

Dynetics has provided robust, highly skilled, hands-on Information Assurance (IA) C&A support to a wide array of DoD agencies, programs, networks, and weapons systems, as well as healthcare, education, and manufacturing entities, since 1999.

To maintain our world-class support, Dynetics' highly trained and certified workforce maintains a cutting-edge knowledge of existing and emerging cyber threat tools, techniques, and procedures, as well as insight into existing and relative effectiveness of the current and emerging countermeasure tools against those threats. With five fully functioning, corporately funded cyber-related laboratories in place, Dynetics has the skills and facilities to help address your cyber requirements as they materialize.

DIACAP Support

Dynetics' support includes Top Secret - Sensitive Compartmented Information (TS-SCI) networks and weapons systems and nationwide wide area networks (WANs), as well as small, standalone systems. In providing this support, Dynetics successfully transitioned each of its DoD customers completely from the old DoD Information Technology Security Certification and Accreditation Process (DITSCAP) to the current DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) while effectively addressing the unique requirements of Department of Defense Intelligence Information System (DODIIS) processes when the nature of the supported system required it.

Always striving to meet our customers' ever-compressing decision cycle, Dynetics developed highly effective data handling, data reduction, and tailored report generation tools that reduced our test preparation to final report cycle by 70% over traditional manual processes.

Compliance Support in the Private Sector

Similar to federal agencies, many private industries are required to comply with federal regulations relating to their information systems. Dynetics provides compliance support for a variety of regulations such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, PCI-DSS, and ISO 27002. Whether you need a secure architecture design, a penetration test, or security control implementation, we have the skills and experience necessary to deploy and test solutions specific to your requirements.
