Cyber COAST is a trusted cyber adviser with a proven record of identifying and managing risk for numerous agencies across the government. Our experienced and credentialed professionals understand the unique requirements of federal, civilian, homeland security, defense, and intelligence missions, delivering services that solve an agency’s most critical operational, process, and communications challenges. We are committed to helping our customers accomplish their mission of a secure and resilient cyber infrastructure.
Cybersecurity needs to manage an array of discrete but interdependent disciplines focused on the protection of business agility, process innovation, and demonstrated value. Cyber COAST has partnered with the Innovation Value Institute to bring IVI's Information Technology — Capability Maturity Model (IT-CMF) to our clients. IT-CMF helps our clients devise robust strategies, make better-informed decisions, and perform more effectively, efficiently, and consistently. The connection between cybersecurity and business value is the greatest enabler to enduring mission successes, one that requires executing a diverse set of skills for success. The IT Capability Maturity Framework ties these skills together in a way that helps organizations zero in on the most important areas for increasing the value of the cybersecurity function.
The framework is flexible to enable your organization to prioritize the capabilities or groups that should be addressed first. Through our full spectrum approach to cybersecurity, Cyber COAST assures an organization’s assets, information and reputation. Our adaptable and repeatable processes build, mature, and enhance cybersecurity programs, offering risk management, governance, security operations, and compliance services.
Our nation relies on an increasingly interconnected critical infrastructure to enable our way of life, commerce, and government. The USA PATRIOT Act defines critical infrastructure as "systems and assets, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the United States that the incapacity or destruction of such systems and assets would have a debilitating impact on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination of those matters."
These critical infrastructures and allied operations require not only a higher level of protection, but also resiliency that enables the operation to continue on in the event of a compromise or attack. Fighting through an attack is an important cultural change that requires increased training, robust engineering, proactive design, and likely additional capacity. These planning factors enable operators of critical systems the confidence to operate in a contested environment.
Cyber COAST starts each engagement by gaining a fundamental understanding of your current and future mission — your raison d'être. This understanding drives our engagement and ultimately the cybersecurity solution necessary to protect your critical assets. We analyze your current cybersecurity approach to identify what you currently use and you might need. We base our analysis on the applicable industry best practice frameworks (e.g., ITIL, IT-CMF, NIST, etc.) to identify technical, operational, managerial, financial, training, and procedural gaps.
Cyber COAST's consulting practice areas include:
- SCADA Security Assessments
- Threat Modeling and Incident Response
- Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery Planning
- Compliance Management
You can't afford to have your operations compromised. Your operations require not only a higher level of protection, but also resiliency that enables it to continue even though a compromise or attack has occurred. To fight through an attack on your operation, you will need a cultural change — one that requires increased training, robust engineering, proactive design, and additional capacity. These security measures enable you to maintain the confidence to operate in a contested environment.
