IT security, performance, and availability are essential to government operations, for large federal entities and small municipalities alike. AppliedTrust has deep experience supporting government agencies of all shapes and sizes, and we can help you meet your compliance and service-level goals. We understand the unique nature of government operations and can tailor our solutions to fit each client’s budget and policy constraints.
We regularly provide government entities with a range of IT security services — from assessment to architecture to ongoing operations — and AppliedTrust can apply our expertise to support your IT staff and infrastructure every step of the way.
Security Assessment and Compliance
Most government entities perform third-party security audits at least annually, to ensure that they are aware of possible vulnerabilities and compliance gaps. Rather than taking the limited approach of assessing against a single standard or regulation, AppliedTrust helps clients map the compliance landscape — across all applicable IT standards and legislation. We have experience assisting government clients with regulatory requirements such as CJIS, NERC CIP, PCI DSS, DOI, NIST, ISO 27001:2013, COPPA, Red Flag Rule, and HIPAA compliance. AppliedTrust’s holistic approach ensures that mitigation dollars and effort are spent where they will have the greatest overall impact on security.
IT Strategy, Architecture, and Operations
Unlike many of our competitors, we won’t simply hand over a pile of recommendations and disappear; rather, AppliedTrust is always there to help you implement and operate recommended solutions going forward. This commitment means that we will provide balanced, actionable recommendations that work in the real world. We can provide IT architecture and operations support hourly, on a project basis, or by taking full operational responsibility for specific IT services and components. And if you need help developing an IT governance program, ITIL processes, a technology vision map, or an IT budget, our consultants also have the expertise to help you create a strategic plan for the future.
Security or Performance Incident Handling
Incidents happen to everyone, and whether it’s a service outage, a security crisis, or a nagging performance problem, AppliedTrust can help. Our engineers can help triage the incident, identify a path “out of the woods,” and lead your team through the incident-mitigation process. When appropriate, our certified forensic incident handlers will collect evidence in a legally sound manner. We hope you never experience a serious incident, but if you do, we’ll be there to help you minimize the impact and get things back to normal rapidly.
