Knowledge Consulting Group today announced that it has been awarded a blanket purchase agreement by the U.S. General Services Administration and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to provide cybersecurity services to the federal government.
The BPA allows KCG to provide agencies with certification and accreditation services to implement guidelines released by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
“The risk management framework is transforming federal cybersecurity by shifting the focus of C&A to real-time, operational security,” said Maryann Hirsch, President of KCG. “We are honored to have been selected to help the federal government implement this key guidance and support agencies in combating the growing number and scope of cyber attacks.”
According to KCG, the agreement outlines that KCG will provide C&A services in alignment with the risk management process for all information systems to ensure compliance with the Federal Information Security Management Act.
KCG will categorize, select, implement, monitor and assess security control. In addition to this, KCG will also perform initial risk assessments and continuous monitoring, develop contingency plan documentation and incident response plans, and conduct privacy impact assessments and e-Authentication risk assessments.
