Helping Civilian Agencies Secure IT Systems
Are your agency information systems secure? With attacks on mission-critical government systems growing in number and increasing in sophistication, there is always a need for greater vigilance. To bolster cybersecurity efforts, agencies are moving away from historical compliance reporting toward combating threats on a real-time basis, as part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Program.

Kratos SecureInfo has helped secure government environments with confidence over the over the last 20 years with a range of services. These services range from advisory support, Assessment & Authorization (A&A), cloud security, and cybersecurity testing, to continuous monitoring.

Continuous Monitoring
Are you prepared to implement and practice continuous monitoring? Regulatory compliance used to mean an annual audit and a check box. But with the advent of the Continuous Diagnostics & Mitigation (CDM) Program from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), civilian agencies are moving from periodic paper-based to real-time automated assessments.

We provide continuous monitoring services to maintain the security posture of civilian environments. This includes providing Continuous Monitoring as a Service (CMaaS) to federal agencies as part of the CDM program.
