Ensuring, Securing and Protecting the Nation's Critical Network Systems and Information
The MIL Corporation provides full IT security management services to both government and commercial organizations. Our staff includes information assurance (IA) and cybersecurity experts with advanced degrees and technical certifications, including certified information security systems professionals (CISSP). We are experts in safeguarding information systems and we look for every opportunity to help our customers effectively manage risk and protect business-critical data.
Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP)
The certified information systems security professional (CISSP) is designed to ensure that someone handling computer security for a company or client has mastered a standardized body of knowledge.
Computer Network Defense (CND) Expertise
As a computer network defense (CND) expert, hands-on knowledge is applied to solve technical and functional customer base issues both within and outside the federal government.
Information Assurance Expertise
Using DoD’s cybersecurity strategic initiatives as a guidepost and our own corporate experience applying information assurance (IA) best practices as a springboard, this entails reducing risks, threats, and vulnerabilities in cyberspace by leveraging the creativity and innovative thinking of MIL’s current cyber workforce to apply, harness, and control the power of rapid technological changes.
Informational System Security Management Professional (ISSMP) Personnel
ISSMP personnel are trained in enterprise security management practices, enterprise-wide system development security, overseeing compliance of operations security, and understanding business continuity planning (BCP), disaster recovery planning (DRP) and continuity of operations planning (COOP).
Certification and Accreditation (C&A)
C&A is a comprehensive evaluation of the technical and non-technical security controls and safeguards of an information system to support the accreditation process that establishes the extent to which a particular design and implementation meets a set of specified security requirements including a formal declaration by a senior agency official designated accrediting authority (DAA) that an information system is approved to operate at an acceptable level of risk.
Certification Audit Support in Accordance with DIACAP
The DoD information assurance certification and accreditation process (DIACAP) ensures that risk management is applied to information systems. DIACAP defines a DOD-wide formal and standard set of activities, general tasks, and a management structure process for the certification and accreditation (C&A) of a DoD IS that maintains the information assurance (IA) posture throughout the system’s life cycle.
Disaster Recovery Planning
Disaster recovery and business continuity planning are processes that help organizations prepare for disruptive events—whether those events might include a hurricane or simply a power outage caused or some other disaster.
Technical Vulnerability Assessment
A technical vulnerability assessment is a key component of an organization’s risk assessment and risk management programs. Also sometimes described as a penetration test, the technical vulnerability assessment is broken up into several distinct phases of analysis.
Intrusion Detection and Analysis
The goal of an intrusion detection system and analysis is to monitor the effectiveness of control systems by monitoring for evidence of attacks. An intrusion detection system is often necessary to help control the risks associated with common vulnerabilities such as e-mail borne viruses, infected laptops, and human factors.
