Air Force selects ISSE Services to provide cybersecurity for critical infrastructure
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 five 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. 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.
