Akytech has successfully provided Information Assurance (IA) services and support to several federal clients. We follow an organized and proven Information Assurance (IA) and security response process based on the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), NIST, and DIACAP protocols. We implement and validate security controls as an important part of each stage of the project lifecycle. We analyze the IA requirements and develop/contribute to system security architecture to include detailed security design, configuration and implementation (hardware, software) hardening, and the dynamic threat risk matrix from ongoing vulnerability assessments.

We pay rigorous and continuous attention to security of the systems we manage to meet the security target requirements and IA controls set by the organization. Our compliance, governance, and risk management approach proactively identifies and eliminates threats and vulnerabilities, continuously ensures alignment, minimizes program cost, and prevents security breaches.

Our Approach

Akytech integrates, coordinates, and supports cybersecurity activities related to the secure transmission and storage of electronic information, implementation of cybersecurity policy/procedures, development and implementation of processes and mechanisms by which sensitive information and services are protected. We provide user awareness training, risk management, and internal and external auditing. Additional support includes establishing procedures supporting IT security requirements; conducting risk assessments to identify threats/vulnerabilities; providing cybersecurity planning, reporting, and implementation; maintaining and supporting cybersecurity infrastructures; performing vulnerability risk assessments and managing risks with the Plan of Action & Milestones (POA&M) process; supporting Information Assurance and Certification and Accreditation; supporting Identity Credentialing and Management using Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technologies; and providing training.

Akytech adheres to organizational standards like the DoD directives and National Institute Standards and Technology (NIST) guidelines on a broad range of system and application security practices. We deliver a portfolio of IA services that protect the availability, integrity, confidentiality, non-repudiation, and authentication of data stored, processed, and transmitted.
