Our cyber solutions enable customers to confidently deploy secure platforms and technologies and protect their most critical data assets.

Digital transformation is creating pressure for IT security organizations to rethink, restructure and more formally address privacy, trust and safety, in response to the mandated regulatory requirements.  In addition, the relentless adoption of Cloud and mobile computing is disrupting the traditional infrastructure security and redefining network and server security requirements.  So, with the change in the digital landscape, DLH has evolved and expanded its security expertise to be both horizontally and vertically integrated – to cover the full spectrum of the security ecosystem.  We work with Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs), Information System Security Officers (ISSOs) and other business and IT leaders at our client organizations to obtain and ensure acceptable risk levels.  We engineer, implement, and operate solutions that demonstrate measurable results to satisfy our client’s risk appetite, thus helping our clients to confidently deploy secure platforms and technologies that reduce operational costs. 

Authorization & Accreditation (A&A)

Conduct comprehensive assessments of system components, documentation, and vulnerabilities, and establish a design and implementation to meet a set of specified security requirements into a formal package for an Authority to Operate (ATO) 

  • Risk Management Framework (RMF)

    Manage the organizational risk associated with the operation of a system, by integrating security and risk management activities into the system development lifecycle, through selection and specification of security controls 

  • Authority to Operate (ATO)

    Use smarter methods – automation, controls inheritance, transparency, and risk management to work through the RMF – to tackle A&A and expedite the granting of ATOs 

Security Engineering

Adopt tools, processes, and methods needed to design, implement, and test systems and dependencies while adapting existing systems as their environment evolves.

  • API Gateway

    Support microservices architectures and decouple the client interface from backend implementations

  • Container Security and Serverless Abstraction

    Adopt security architectures that are more application-oriented, agile, scalable, and automated, with the ability to be deployed and managed across a broad range of environments 

  • Network Security

    Transform the delivery of Cloud-based services through edge computing and combine network security functions with WAN capabilities to provide secure access to applications anywhere 

  • Zero Trust

    Continually analyze and evaluate risks to assets and functions and then enact protections to mitigate these risks by minimizing access to resources to only those users and assets that need access, and by continually authenticating and authorizing the identity and security posture of each access request 

ISSO Support

Express complicated technical matters clearly, develop A&A documents, facilitate tracking and execute POA&Ms to address vulnerabilities 

Data and Information Protection

Ensure all data and information have the appropriate levels of security in place 

Security Operations

Adopt tools, processes, and methods needed to design, implement, and test systems and dependencies while adapting existing systems as their environment evolves.

  • Continuous Monitoring

    Assess and prioritize the remediation of vulnerabilities resulting from planned and unplanned changes to hardware, software, firmware, or operating environments, as part of Risk Management Framework requirements. 

  • Vulnerability Scanning

    Periodically scan operating systems and applications to look for security vulnerabilities, such as outdated software versions, missing patches, and misconfigurations, and validate compliance with, or deviations from, an organization’s security policy 

  • Configuration Assessment

    Determine the secure state of individual system configurations and use it as input to Risk Management Framework requirements 

  • Incident Detection and Response

    Establish logging standards to ensure adequate information is collected, develop procedures to review data regularly, and prioritize incidents based on relevant factors
