The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded Enterprise Engineering Services LLC (EES) with the National Airspace Systems (NAS) Information System Security Support (ISS) contract. Under Systems Engineering Support Services, EES will assist in the development of cybersecurity solutions for the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) and the System Wide Information Management (SWIM) program.
A coordinated approach to evaluating and deploying information systems security solutions is essential to aviation safety, especially in view of current NextGen modernization efforts. Reduced cyber security vulnerabilities and improved security protections are essential to protect the United States (US) Aviation Domain critical Information Technology (IT) infrastructure and assure the safety of US citizens travelling to domestic and international locations.
While NextGen Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E) analyzes security gaps and develops requirements for Trust, Identity, and Access Management, the SWIM program budgets for and implements, enterprise security controls to support these requirements. This unique area of cybersecurity requires specialized expertise.
EES is proud to be the FAA's choice in providing the specialized expertise that is effort requires.
