CNA has worked on more than 200 A&A projects for federal and Department of Defense (DoD) agencies, using National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) SP 800-37 and DoD guidance- DIACAP.  CNA secures some of the most critical information systems and networks in the world. Its information assurance experts have helped customers in the DoD, Intelligence community, federal, state, and local government, and commercial organizations to secure enterprise operations while enabling information sharing.  CNA Corporation also has experience establishing consolidated around-the-clock Network Operations Security Centers (NOSCs) to protect IT Enterprise from network attack and exploitation.
CNA takes an end-to-end view of the information assurance life cycle in its methodology for IV&V and ISS practices. In addition to the broad perspective useful for ensuring no process gaps, CNA has developed standard processes and tools for each element of the information assurance life cycle.  

(The precursor tool to CyberProfile, another CNA innovation, has already been mandated for use across DHS by the DHS CIO. As an EAGLE II Core Team member, CNA will be able to provide DHS with an enhanced version of the already-approved DHS tool of choice for life cycle C&A.) 


K4 Solutions is a woman-owned small disadvantaged business certified as 8(a) by the Small Business Administration and focused on Information Technology, contact centers, Human Capital support and document management for government agencies.  K4 is a $20M company with 9 years of DHS and federal experience in contact centers supporting the Transportation Security Administration.

K4 currently runs the TSA Contact Center (TCC) in London, KY. The TCC is the primary incoming portal from the public and receives calls from TSA employees, private industry, other government organizations, members of Congress, and the White House.  K4 Customer Service Representatives (CSRs) respond to inquiries that cover a variety of topics such as: passenger complaints regarding security screening; questions about security procedures; questions about Federal jobs with TSA; reports and claims of lost, stolen, or damaged items; questions about TSA programs and policies; requests for assistance from TSA employees on various issues; comments related to current media attention on security issues; and customer feedback from TSA’s web-based and publicity outreach programs and reports of perceived lax security or vulnerabilities in aviation or surface transportation modes. K4 supports numerous TSA program offices and programs with very specific requirements.  K4 provides TSA with a contact center that is available, responsive, secure, and high-performing and contributes to meeting TSA strategic goals by enabling effective and efficient communication between TSA and non-media entities/stakeholders.  The TCC is a widely publicized venue for the public to contact TSA.  It is also a mechanism through which TSA receives information about potential threats to transportation security from both well-meaning individuals and those with harmful intent.

In addition to responding to telephone calls, K4 provides a state of the art Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system; responds to citizen emails; distributes claim and redress forms; provides daily, weekly, and monthly statistical tracking and reporting information on incoming contacts; and processes information regarding perceived lax security or vulnerabilities in aviation or surface transportation modes.  At this call center, K4 handles over 2 million calls annually in addition to nearly 1 million emails.


Sphinx Solutions, Inc. is committed to cost-effectively reducing risks and strengthening security posture, and offers a blended set of solutions that enable customers to select the right option for their particular circumstances. Under the KIMC cyber security services contract, Sphinx identified vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the customer’s security mechanisms and assurances, and presented a final list of findings and recommendations based on the assessment, including strategies for mitigating residual risk. As a result, KIMC was able to establish new policies and protocols that ensured security within the systems and were cost-effective. Sphinx probed points of entry, which benefited the customer operationally in that it could now identify system information and/or access parameters and “close the door” to prevent exploitation of found vulnerabilities and unauthorized access. Sphinx also performed host-based security assessments to determine the overall security of host operating systems. The methodology used for the examination of the wireless networks aided the customer in identifying active devices, capturing and analyzing packets, identifying encryption mechanisms, sampling packets to break the wireless encryption, analyzing placement and access to wireless equipment, and identifying application security encryption. Sphinx performed a complete assessment on state-of-the-art IT infrastructure using the latest technologies and tools to confirm system security. As most of the DHS IT infrastructure is newer than that of other agencies, Sphinx’s experience in penetration testing, ethical hacking, and C&A with these unique systems, and lessons learned regarding the latest technologies and tools, will directly benefit DHS.
