speed with discipline
For government, there is no challenge greater than cybersecurity. Government agencies face escalating pressure to maintain constant vigilance against persistent cyber threats and attacks. In addition, Federal system integrators and other commercial partners that do business with U.S. government defense, intelligence and civilian agencies must establish robust information security defenses and continuously demonstrate compliance with evolving regulations and standards.
We leverage state-of-the-art technologies and systems engineering fundamentals to combine speed with discipline to cost-effectively strengthen your security posture for the lifecycle of your information system.
Controlled Unclassified Information
As of December 31, 2017, if your organization provides services to the U.S. federal government, you must provide documentation and evidence as to how your organization is protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). For organizations with multiple information systems, determining which systems process CUI may not be obvious. Furthermore, many organizations aren’t sure whether their federal data and records are classified as CUI, or whether the right safeguards are in place to protect that CUI. Using our proven methodologies and certified security personnel, Celeris will ensure you achieve CUI compliance as efficiently as possible. Learn More →
Risk Management Framework
Beginning in August of 2016, all new Federal Information System accreditations are required adhere to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Risk Management Framework (RMF) process to achieve Authorization to Operate (ATO) certification. This new accreditation process introduces a complex challenge to Industry through new approaches in system categorization, assessment, and continuous monitoring. We have assisted companies and Federal agencies through this complex process and we will ensure your Certification and Accreditation tasks are thoroughly completed efficiently and on-time.

New sophisticated threats are creating new risks for federal cybersecurity. These threats are complex, varied and evolve every day. Attacks continue to increase in volume and sophistication, meaning that agency defenses also have to evolve. The challenge is especially difficult for government agencies because they manage sensitive data that require special handling, classification and heightened access monitoring for insider threats.
Celeris has developed threat frameworks to continuously monitor the threat environment pertaining to your industry and system architecture. Based on the current threats, the appropriate risks can be identified, prioritized, and mitigated.
Continuous monitoring is a critical cyber function for any organization. System patches and upgrades must occur as threats continuously evolve. Celeris can provide management of existing and new vulnerabilities across the broad spectrum of security controls identified within the Risk Management Framework.
With limited resources, organizations do not have the luxury to build extensive test labs or to replicate an existing system dedicated for cyber testing. Celeris has experience facilitating numerous tabletop exercises using architecture designs, network diagrams, interface control documents, and sometimes real operational data to determine potential mission impact from a broad range of cyber threats. When used early in the system development lifecycle, tabletop exercises can help build resiliency into your systems.
CYBER TEST & EVALUATION
Once security controls are identified and implemented within your system, it is critical to measure their effectiveness in mitigating mission risks. And, as system changes occur and new threats present themselves, it is important to continuously determine the impact to your overall risk posture.
A robust cyber test management framework is essential to identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities within your system. Celeris can help develop and manage a test framework for your organization. From security control assessments, blue/red team planning and execution, or focused cyber component testing, we will ensure adequate test coverage is provided to your program.
Celeris can also train personnel in different security domains to ensure that a successful security program is executed and maintained for your organization. Training opportunities include implementation of a Risk Management Framework, planning for a cyber test event, or facilitation of a tabletop exercise. We can help develop your organization into a world-class, security minded agency.
