Information Assurance

When it comes to transmitting sensitive information, you and your organization have no margin for error. You need the assurance that your communications network has not been compromised by an intruder. TCS’ information assurance suite of services manages the risk associated with data transmission and provides the peace of mind needed when sending and receiving critical communications.

TCS Information Assurance services provide information systems security lifecycle management, vulnerability assessment and evaluation, and certification and accreditation service for DIACAP or NIACAP. Together these services ensure that all communication transmission modes in systems and enterprises are able to maintain operational integrity.

Information Assurance: Securing the Privacy of your Data

Our information assurance services provide technical and administrative controls designed to enforce confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data on information systems. But our services offer more than just security: they fill the gap between information operations and physical security, encompassing issues relating to privacy, regulatory compliance, audits, business continuity, and disaster recovery.

Information Systems Security Lifecycle Management (ISSLM)

TCS manages systems through the entire lifecycle with our proven methodology using the following techniques to provide information assurance support:

  • ISSE (information systems security engineering)
  • Systems Implementation (TCS III step implementation process)
  • Certification and accreditation activities for DIACAP/NIACAP support
  • SDIM (Security Documentation Implementation and Maintenance Process)
  • Configuration control management
  • IAVAM (information assurance vulnerability alert management)
  • Training
  • Systems baselines, installation, repairs, or backups

Information Systems Security Lifecycle Management supports any integrated system, such as the TCS SwiftLink® deployable communications suite.

Vulnerability Assessment and Evaluation

The TCS Vulnerability Assessment Team (TVAT) provides information security (INFOSEC) assessments, INFOSEC evaluations, penetration testing, and/or remediation through processes we have derived directly from a federal government agency's Information Assessment Methodology / Information Evaluation Methodology (IAM/IEM) guidance.

Through a multi-level process, we examine and evaluate an organization’s security posture and and provide solutions to address deficiencies.

Certification and Accreditation Services

We provide certification and accreditation services for DIACAP and NIACAP to enable federal government agencies such as the Department of Defense to meet FISMA (Federal Information Security Management Act) requirements. Our process also aids in the transition from DITSCAP to DIACAP. We also have the ability to provide support throughout all DIACAP/NIACAP phases.
