Air Force Selects ISSE Services
As part of a $40M sustainment program, the U.S. Air Force has selected ISSE Services, LLC to provide comprehensive cybersecurity information assurance, engineering and logistics support for the Remote Visual Assessment (RVA) video surveillance system. The RVA system guards the nation’s intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) sites. Throughout the 5 year, $1.2M contract, ISSE Services will support cybersecurity protection for key portions of the RVA system, providing information system security engineering for physical interfaces at the launch facilities and monitoring stations, as well as the data transmission system.
“The cybersecurity community has always focused on traditional IT systems,” said ISSE Services Principal Consultant, Kevin Spease. “The line is now blurred between security intrusion equipment and integrated IT systems. Physical security systems are highly centralized and fused across an organizational IT networks. This creates huge operational efficiencies, but also generates new pathways for cyber intrusion and puts critical data at risk. We are pleased to help solve this challenge for the Air Force and the RVA system.”
Work will be performed at F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming; Hill Air Force Base, Utah; Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana; and Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota. ISSE Services will support this contract through November 2, 2019 with additional full time staff at Hill Air Force Base providing information assurance analysis and support services.
