Cybersecurity

Eliminating Threats, Securing Tomorrow

Conflicts today extend far beyond the battlefield. Cyber threats pose increasingly severe risks to personal and national security. Pragmatics is an innovator in developing cyber-secure solutions to protect information systems, applications and networks. Our advanced capabilities and proven methodologies enable us to provide clients with a full spectrum of cybersecurity solutions and services that deliver results at every stage of the system life cycle.

Pragmatics Cyber Security

We serve as trusted partners to federal agencies and U.S. military clients who demand the highest levels of personal integrity, technical prowess, and vertical expertise. Our cybersecurity solutions are integral to the security of U.S. citizens, our economy, and infrastructure. Our proven expertise includes secure architecture design and integration, certification and accreditation (C&A) specialized for the agile environment, DoD Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) integration, risk and vulnerability assessments, security training and education (Tips of the Day), organizational and system security policy development and review, continuity of operations planning support, and disaster recovery services support.

Pragmatics assists several DoD clients in the preparation of their C&A packages to ensure compliance with the DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP).  In our role as the Certifying Authority (CA) Representative (CAR), Pragmatics has been responsible for conducting the review of end users’ C&A packages and making recommendations to appropriate CAs to grant a client system or site an authorization to operate or connect.  While conducting these reviews, Pragmatics determines whether security vulnerabilities have been addressed or mitigated to acceptable levels and that C&A packages are complete, and we prepare the final recommendations to the CAs noting the absence of system insecurities to the client enterprise.  We have also introduced quality controls into our workflow to improve process timelines and reduce unnecessary errors.

Pragmatics Proven Cybersecurity Products & Services:

Our innovative approach to achieving mission objectives has led us to develop distinctive cybersecurity solutions, including:

  • COIM: Maximize Enterprise Security

    Cyber Operations Improvement ModelSM (COIM) improves processes and increases efficiencies to increase complete enterprise security. COIM is grounded in industry best practices and standards such as CMMI® Level 5, ISO/IEC 20000-1, ISO/IEC 27001, and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) SP800-39.

  • Cyber-SMART: Continuous Enterprise Risk Management

    In searching for the best enterprise-wide risk management strategy tools, many agencies find it difficult to obtain a tool and create guidance that encompasses the risk management methodology.  Key elements of the tool should address the phases of the risk management framework on categorization, selection of controls, implementation, assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring.

    Pragmatics’ Cyber-SMART (Select Manage, Assess, Remediate and Track) continuous risk management methodology implements data-driven, repeatable, and verifiable manual and automated tool-based processes to protect an organization’s assets from unauthorized access and attack. The Cyber-SMART methodology enables administrators to maintain situational awareness across the organization and make appropriate risk-based decisions as a result.

  • Precision Penetration Testing

    Pragmatics cybersecurity teams use our unique, eight-phase PrecisionSM Penetration Testing methodology to help federal agencies ensure sensitive data is not vulnerable to unauthorized access and mission-critical services cannot be disrupted. Precision Penetration Testing mimics techniques used by hackers and other adversaries to identify exploitable security holes in an organization’s defensive posture. Precision methodology is able to identify, analyze and rank vulnerabilities and provide recommendations for mitigating or eliminating weaknesses. Precision involves efficient, traceable, and reproducible procedures that adhere to NIST technical standards and industry best practices for network, system, and Web application security testing.

Pragmatics can develop applications to solve any business challenge. To request more information, we invite you to contact our corporate headquarters at 703-890-8500, or visit our Contact Us page.
