Telos, ICS Partner to Host DHS Data Systems

Telos and ICS have partnered to help migrate the Department of Homeland Security’s data into a Telos-built information assurance management system.

DHS’ Office of the Chief Information Officer has deployed Telos’ Xacta IA Manager into systems and agency components and automated the National Institute of Science and Technology’s risk management framework using that platform, Telos said Wednesday.

“We have implemented common controls across the entire enterprise,” said Richard Johnson, DHS’ branch lead for technology implementation.

Xacta IA Manager works to manage and monitor authorizations and control assessments for the DHS.

“Xacta IA Manager automates tasks associated with authorization to operate while providing much greater visibility into the process,” said Turner Kobayashi, vice president of enterprise services for Telos.

Telos will also implement a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program workflow by using the Xacta IA Manager in order to help the DHS meet security requirements.
