Federal Cyber Risk Services
Make your agency Secure.Vigilant.Resilient.™
Federal agency security investments are at an all-time high, yet cyber-attacks are still on the rise, both in number and sophistication. While today’s constantly evolving, fast-paced technology powers new strategic and mission initiatives, it also opens new doors for cyber criminals. Our Secure.Vigilant.Resilient. approach helps you manage the cyber risk you know and get ahead of the ones you don’t.
What does it mean to be Secure, Vigilant, and Resilient?
Demand for adequately trained and knowledgeable cyber personnel far exceeds the available talent pool, and it’s unlikely to get better anytime soon. New strategies—like combining cognitive technologies with cybersecurity professionals—should be devised to best utilize the available talent and meet public and private cybersecurity objectives.
Changes and emerging trends in federal information technology make it critical for federal chief information officers and chief financial officers to work together to understand organizational challenges, and to collaborate on solutions to defend against evolving cyber threats—prioritizing their cyber preparedness in association with financial and mission-critical activities.
The strategic things you do to achieve your mission are at the heart of the cyber risks your agency faces. A Secure.Vigilant.Resilient.™ cyber risk program is not just about spending money differently–it’s a fundamentally different approach.
Analyzing an agency’s external footprint from an adversary’s perspective can enable proactive detection, prioritization, and effective mitigation of cyber threats.
For government, cybersecurity isn’t only a challenge—it’s a big obstacle to long-awaited digital transformation. Plus, the stakes are sky-high: Hacking public-sector information might imperil national security as well as citizens’ trust. Is government up to the task?
While cyber risk is pervasive, additive manufacturing (AM) is one area where it can be especially dangerous, due to AM’s reliance on digital files and connectivity, and the impact on multiple parties through the supply chain.
A world beyond passwords: Improving security, efficiency, and user experience in digital transformation
There’s a reason why many of us use the same password for every login: Who can remember dozens of different combinations of numbers and letters? Technology is on the verge of rendering passwords obsolete, bolstering security as well as making users and customers happier.

Cybersecurity is becoming increasingly vital to accomplish mission objectives, which means agencies should consider instituting a culture of cybersecurity rather than looking at technology to support control and/or compliance issues.
