Experts at Developing Federal Security Policies and Procedures

As discussed above, we offer Texas businesses the option of saving a tremendous amount of time and money with our comprehensive policy toolkits and templates for many of today’s leading federal regulations. Don’t have time to author your policies – not a problem – we can assist also in taking our existing templates and customizing them to your exact needs. Going the extra step in terms of information security policies and procedures development is something we do all the time. We’ve heard the nightmarish stories of defense contractors spending endless hours trying to author their own policy documents, only to get frustrated by the process. Those days are over, and thankfully!

We Can Also Find you the Right Security Tools

All of today’s federal compliance frameworks – FISMA, DFARS 800-171, FedRAMP, HIPAA, GBLA, and more – are somewhat technical in nature, ultimately requiring businesses to implement a wide-range of security tools. Here are some of the most common security requirements needed for federal compliance, so ask yourself if you have these tools in place:

  • File Integrity Monitoring (FIM)
  • Audit Trails and Audit Logging & Parsing
  • Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
  • Intrusion Detection System (IDS)
  • Vulnerability Scanning
  • Encryption for protecting sensitive data
  • Annual Penetration Tests

The list just seems to go on and on, yet luckily, there are a number of high-quality, cost-effective toolsets available, especially for the SMB defense industry, where cost containment is critical. This is important to note as there are hundreds of security vendors in the marketplace today, many of them pushing aggressively in selling to anybody they can. This means you could very well get the wrong product at the wrong prices. Don’t fall victim to the compliance sales talk, let us help in finding you the best security toolset at the best price – that’s the FLANK difference.

Providing Texas Businesses with Security Assessments and Consulting

If you need an independent, third-party assessment performed, or perhaps assistance with developing a System Security Plan (SSP), Plan-of-Action and Milestones (POAM) findings – two notable federal compliance requirements – we can assist. We’ve been authoring SSP’s, POAM documentation, along with performing Security Assessment Reports (SAR) for Texas businesses and other federal contractors all throughout the nation, so contact us today at This email address is being protected from spambots.
