Cloud & Cyber Featured Contract
SPAARK delivers end-to-end cybersecurity solution to the Airforce. Being an Enterprise-level program, the cybersecurity processes radiate to and from the enterprise architecture (EA) and business process areas that define customer capabilities to the literal programming and fielding strategies employed by SPAARK technicians.
Our cybersecurity professionals are intimately involved in the formulation of services and IT strategies and promote the inclusion of our expertise during the technical planning and implementation of application solutions. This includes being involved with EA business process engineering efforts that frame application enhancements, Agile and DevOps Scrum Teams, and test-driven-development design patterns to ensure software and field validation is proactively influenced to succeed Information Assurance and Cybersecurity testing. These efforts include NIST RMF-driven Assessment & Authorization (A&A) processes that identify valuable IT assets, potential threats against those assets, as well as current or emerging vulnerabilities to as many as 50 AF Personnel mission applications and hundreds of technology integration touch points, data interfaces, and ETL functions. With this information POA&MS are created and tracked, including the identification of mitigating factors until vulnerability remediation is accomplished.
With respect to our performance in these areas, SPAARK engineers systematically capture and provide data center and mission application cybersecurity risk analysis feedback pertaining to acceptance, avoidance, and mitigation strategies as part of weekly and monthly progress reports.
