Black Rock ensures appropriate safeguards are in place to protect networks and network-supported assets.

Our Security Engineers and Analysts are unique in that they have provided Certification and Accreditation (C&A) and Assessment and Authorization (A&A) services to General Computing Environments with Global Information Grid connected systems as well as Weapons, Launch Range Instrumentation, and Industrial Control Systems (ICS).  We know the nuances associated with those systems and will develop and implement Systems Security Strategies and plans that identify, mitigate, monitor, report, and fix vulnerabilities of target systems.  Our execution of cybersecurity includes assigning measurable implementation/maintenance costs of countermeasures, for acquisition planning and prioritization of requirements within the customer’s procurement strategy.
