Cybersecurity

Understanding the true security risk posture of information assets is a challenge for many organizations. Technalink uncovers system protection gaps and mitigates risks to stay ahead of relevant changing threat factors that leave organizations vulnerable to attacks.

Our suite of complementary cybersecurity services strengthens every aspect of your organization and safeguards against advanced threats. Our holistic and adaptable approach protects your systems, data, people, and reputation while ensuring compliance with Federal cybersecurity requirements following the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) lifecycle.

Secure Application Development

Shifting to new ways of software development that allow for rapid delivery to meet ever changing customer needs, new business requirements, and organizational risk management compliance requires better, faster, and – most importantly, secure pipeline processes.
Software development to the cloud is transforming the speed at which application features are updated, bug fixes are corrected, and security updates are delivered, all in part because of highly orchestrated continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) processes between development and operational teams. Within DevSecOps, we examine security controls with secure design reviews and threat modeling as part of diligent security quality assurance (sqa) practices. We harden containers and incorporate security checks throughout the CI/CD pipeline and automate the security orchestration within the System Development Lifecycle (SDLC) phases ensuring approved design packages, enhancements, patches, and new features have appropriate functioning and tested security controls. Our approach to securing software in development reduces the amount of technical debt and residual risks you have to manage and stay compliance with Federal authorization requirements.

Secure Cloud Migration

Modernizing to take advantage of cloud services requires more than just a “lift and shift” of systems that can leave you with lots of security gaps to protect your data.

We advance Federal cloud modernization initiatives by preparing and building secure cloud configurations for the migration of legacy systems and for the development of new applications. Our approach uses zero-trust security methods to implement robust identity and access management (IAM) controls, secure application programming interfaces (APIs), and encrypt data in thecloud for storage and in transit. We monitor and provide visibility to locate and remediate vulnerabilities in cloud environments using vulnerability management tools for host operating systems, containers, and serverless services. As a shared responsibility with Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), we design cloud data protections to meet FedRAMP and FISMA compliance requirements and implement security tools to protect against emerging threats and attacks.

Privacy Compliance Support & Privacy Engineering Services

Just as knowing what and where your sensitive data is located to securely protect it is critical, but also knowing the privacy needs of that sensitive data is vital too in case it is lost or stolen – and all too often Federal privacy controls are missing or non-compliant as data moves across networks.

We work with Federal Privacy Officers, data owners, and development teams to identify privacy risks, apply Privacy by Design (PbD) principles into DevSecOps pipelines, implement privacy compliance strategies, and integrate privacy policy monitoring and alerting functions into cybersecurity operational dashboards for investigation and remediation.

Vulnerability Assessments

To improve your cybersecurity posture effectively, you need to identify weaknesses in your system before others find them.

TechnaLink’s automated vulnerability assessments scan your entire environment for potential weaknesses. We evaluate networks, systems, applications, and policies whether on-premises or in the cloud. We examine all dimensions to identify potential risks and recommend options for rapid remediation.

Adaptive Risk-Based Security Assessments

TechnaLink’s security assessment team provides the answers you need to objectively assess the status and performance of your cybersecurity solutions. We evaluate software and hardware configurations to confirm that security controls and applied policies accurately reflect expected protection behaviors.

Our Security Assessment and Authorization services (SA&A) team evaluates the proper functioning of systems security controls to ensure compliance with the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) requirements. Our SA&A specialists partner with organizations to categorize and assess risk, evaluate security controls, develop system security plans, and take appropriate action.

24/7 SOC Support

In the public and private sectors alike, a security operations center (SOC) functions as the brain, eyes and ears of an organization’s defense strategy. TechnaLink offers 24/7 support for SOC staff to fortify protection against cyberattacks and devastating data breaches.
Count on our SOC support team to assist with all critical functions, including:

  • Monitoring and analyzing network security events and alerts from Security Information Event Management (SIEM) dashboards, network sensor data stores and endpoint logs to identify unauthorized activity and Indicators of Compromise (IOCs)
  • Modernizing and operating incident response programs by applying MITRE ATT&CK Framework methods to recognize adversarial tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs)
  • Providing countermeasure recommendations to defend against identified threats
  • Reviewing and updating network securitypolicy rules in response to changes in the threat environment
