  • Update on Assessment & Authorization (A&A) Processes for Cross Domain Solutions

    As introduced in our latest certification and accreditation (C&A) basics webcast (“Navigating Certification & Accreditation – A Primer) C&A terminology is transitioning to assessment and authorization (A&A). See the associated white paper “From C&A to A&A – The RMF Shoe Has Dropped.” Continuing the transition discussion, Raytheon Cyber Products and Steve Welke are pleased to present a webcast updating the latest information on A&A processes for cross domain, multilevel security solutions. Join Steve Welke, an A&A industry expert, as he discusses the A&A principles, requirements and processes.

  • Big Data Integration and Analytics for Cyber Security

    Conventional methods for mitigating cyber-attacks are no longer sufficient. Big data analytics — along with an advanced, more strategic approach to network security — is needed to disrupt adversary tools and techniques, and render them ineffective.

  • Stepping Up the Battle Against Advanced Threats

    Cyber-attackers continuously develop sophisticated tactics and evasion techniques to bypass the latest protection methods, requiring the security industry to find a different approach to malware protection. Read this whitepaper to learn where the traditional cybersecurity measures fall short and how your agency can adopt a new approach to defend against advanced threats.
