Information Assurance (IA) has become a requisite operational component given the dependence of business processes on information technology and the adoption of information security mandates such as the Sarbanes Oxley Act, HIPAA and the Gramm-Leach Bliley Financial Modernization Act.
OPTiMO’s IA unit focuses on the defense and protection of your vital information assets. Our interdisciplinary approach adheres to industry security principles to ensure that your data and systems are safeguarded from threats to confidentiality, integrity, authentication, availability and non-repudiation.
From an emergency incident response to a proactive risk assessment, evaluation and mitigation strategy, the OPTiMO IA team offers the following solutions:
Disaster Recovery/Continuity of Operations (DR/COOP)
While most business operations are supported by IT systems, an intelligent recuperation strategy is required to rapidly recover from a negative incident. OPTiMO has extensive experience with the development, implementation and validation of DR/COOP plans. Whether the requirements are federal or commercial in nature, our team formulates solutions that adhere to the Department of Homeland Security’s guidelines while ensuring the continuous operations of your mission critical systems and business.
Business Continuity Planning (BCP)
A related discipline to DR, Business Continuity Planning is a component of a solid management strategy centered on preparing for unforeseen incidents that can disrupt daily business processes and operations. BCP is a preventive and proactive measure to ensure continuity of business standards and service levels in the event of a disruption from untoward variables. OPTiMO helps to anticipate those variables and formulates a customized action plan.
The protection of information assets from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification or destruction requires a comprehensive security strategy. OPTiMO uses a holistic approach that involves the identification and classification of systems and their data, system prioritization based on data sensitivity as well as the assignment and validation of security controls.
Due to the sophistication of today’s integrated networks and the threats posed against them, effective network security requires a complex, multi-layered approach. OPTiMO employs this “defense in depth” methodology when reviewing an existing network’s architecture or when designing a new network from the ground up. Our main objective is the security of your data, applications, servers and the network on which they operate.
