CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 30, 2014--
CBTS, a leading technology solutions provider, today announced that its
Advanced Cyber Security division has earned the National Security
Agency’s (NSA) Cyber Incident Response Assistance (CIRA) certification.
The NSA uses this new accreditation to show that they have vetted the
people, policies, and procedures of an organization and declared them to
be the state-of-the-art capabilities needed for rapid cyber security
support to high-level government agencies.
The NSA developed a defense strategy to leverage the cyber expertise of
the private sector. CIRA is part of this newly formed strategic
initiative called the National Security Cyber Assistance Program, or
NSCAP. It was designed to accredit qualified private-sector
organizations with the ability to handle national security systems.
Even though this accreditation enables CBTS Advanced Cyber Security to
assist government agencies, it also demonstrates the team’s ability to
deliver the highest quality incident response services to all business
sectors. To become a CIRA qualified organization, CBTS Advanced Cyber
Security must be able to provide consistently effective incident
response, intrusion detection, vulnerability assessments, and
penetration testing services. They were evaluated against 21 critical
focus areas for response assistance services as defined by the NSA.
"The CIRA accreditation from the NSA signifies the incredible talent and
capabilities of our team,” said Brian Minick, VP of CBTS Advanced Cyber
Security. "It demonstrates that our philosophy of Intelligent Analysis
and Adaptive Defense is proven and consistently effective."
Joining this short list of accredited organizations, CBTS Advanced Cyber
Security plans to continue its industry leadership and help its clients
Win Every Attack. For more information, contact us at 1-866-587-2287.
