The Challenge: A federal agency in the mission support arena collects, analyzes, and disseminates independent and impartial energy information to promote sound policymaking, efficient markets, and public understanding of energy and its interaction with the economy and the environment. The data and analyses are widely used by federal and state agencies, business & industry, media, researchers, financial markets, and educators. The information is disseminated in different ways, including reports, web products, press releases, data browsers, API’s, and map on a regular basis. As such is it paramount that the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of this information be maintained to support the Agency’s mission and its stakeholders. During the course of carrying out its research, collection, analysis, and reporting missions, users collect and process many different types of information, including financial, proprietary, academic, medical, human resources, and other personally identifiable information. These information assets are highly valued resources and all persons who use these information assets have a responsibility to protect this resource. Federal Law, regulatory requirements, industry standards, and best practices also impose obligations on the Administration to protect information relating to its employees, contractors, and stakeholders.
The security program at the agency needed a major overhaul to ensure the protection of the information assets.
The Solution: TELESIS recommended the implementation of the Enterprise Cyber Modernization Program to support the effort. TELESIS kickstarted the implementation of the program with the establishment of the Enterprise Cybersecurity Modernization Program (ECMP) that outlined the scope, authority, enforcement, and the roles and responsibilities of the ECMP.
TELESIS as part of the modernization effort aligned the program with the Administration’s business units and introduced cybersecurity policies and standards that compliment institution policy, federal, state and local laws, maintaining the necessary balance between risk mitigation and related costs.
The Telesis Team detected threats and worked with all the OIT Support staff and applied security patches on affected systems to mitigate issues. The team re-architected the data log server for the SPLUNK SEIM integration, redesigned VMware clusters and added a new Unity 500 SAN storage.
The team has been foremost in leading the Administration down the Cybersecurity path.Close Lightbox
