Championing Cybersecurity Awareness and Delivering Mission Critical Solutions
As a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Partner and National Cybersecurity Alliance Champion, Cambridge is dedicated to enhancing the resilience of the nation’s critical resources and to eliminating cyber vulnerabilities. Cambridge proudly endorses Cybersecurity Awareness Month and efforts to spread cognizance about the importance of securing our interconnected world.
Cambridge is a proven cybersecurity provider with significant experience, distinct certifications, and valued relationships with our customers and teammates to meet the nation’s most critical cybersecurity needs. To advance our initiatives Cambridge has achieved National Security Agency (NSA) Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Trusted Integrator status. Only 76 companies, out of the thousands of current Government contractors, hold this distinction. Cambridge successfully applied the CSfC approach to cybersecurity in our recent design and implementation of the Jordanian Armed Forces Coalition Network Upgrade.
Cambridge has routinely earned Exceptional CPAR ratings for our support of cybersecurity operations and maintenance; policy development; and cyber defense, analysis, and collection on projects for multiple Government, military, and agency customers. Select projects are briefly described below.
NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC). Cambridge provided IT security and in-depth cyber defense to protect systems and information critical to spaceflight mission activities. During our performance, we flawlessly handled multiple “significant” cybersecurity incidents, and earned the JSC Director’s Innovation Award for advanced Incident Response support during the major cyber-espionage attack and Orion code compromise at SolarWinds, which penetrated thousands of organizations globally, including several U.S. Government agencies. Cambridge also supported Cyber Threat Analysis; Incident Investigation and Response; Network Monitoring; System Security Controls Assessment; and System Vulnerability Management.
Cambridge instituted the Cyber Threat Intelligence Program at JSC, which provided information on emerging cybersecurity threats as well as inputs to the NASA Security Operations Center (SOC).
Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). Cambridge provided computer forensic and incident response to support DISA’s daily operations of the Unified Capabilities Wide Area Network (UC WAN) programs, including off-hour responses to malware, computer crime, and spillage scenarios. Cambridge documented, and investigated incidents and supported recovery. We used forensic tools to collect and analyze network traffic; and we configured, fielded, and implemented full packet capture technologies creating a security Incident Response Process for DISA. We also performed Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) hardening, produced DoD C&A artifacts, and developed an Assessment and Authorization (A&A) package to receive an Authority to Operate (ATO) within DISA.
U.S. Census Bureau (USCB). Cambridge performed systems and security engineering functions to ensure USCB systems were available, secure, and free from viruses and malware. As a member of the Incident Response Team, Cambridge provided 24X7 security incident response investigation support. In addition, we monitored, operated, and maintained USCB security infrastructure and performed C&A for USCB systems according to the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) Risk Management Framework.
Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC). Cambridge provided a CSfC compliant communications network that securely transmits data to remote sites, enhancing Jordan’s defense capabilities and providing the Jordanian Armed Forces (JAF) with the ability to integrate into the Coalition Partner Network. Work included design, procurement, installation, testing, and training, plus development of an Authorizing Official (AO), signature-ready set of documentation detailing the network, systems, system security and physical security attributes for a DoD RMF cyber security assurance package per the United States Central Command Cybersecurity Handbook for Partner Nations.
Cambridge recognizes the severity of the cyber threats that face both our customers’ critical missions and our own. That is why we combine discovery, prevention, threat intelligence, threat detection, and customized analysis to equip our customers with secure, reliable, and interoperable cybersecurity solutions. We exemplify our role as cybersecurity experts and champions by working to eliminate today’s cybersecurity and infrastructure vulnerabilities and preparing to combat future cybersecurity challenges.
