Keeping up with cybersecurity is mission-critical to safeguarding agency data and national security. As Government customers look to implement solutions that help identify and prioritize security incidents, risks, and vulnerabilities and gain visibility over their infrastructure, they need a trusted implementation partner. Karthik Consulting has had nearly a decade of experience helping Government customers like the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the US Army Combat Readiness Center (USACRC) implement solutions that keep agencies safe from cyber threats with risk and vulnerability assessments, cloud security reviews, FedRAMP audits, Section 508 audits, and PIA assessments.

  • FedRAMP CSP/3PAO Audit

    Does your agency have a FedRAMP compliance initiative for your new cloud platform? Cloud Service Providers like ServiceNow have recently made moves to get their cloud platforms FedRAMP-certified for their Government customers. FedRAMP’s Joint Authorization Board has set out standards for the role of the Cloud Service Provider (CSP) and Third-Party Assessment Organization (3PAO) in the JAB authorization process.

  • Maintain Section 508 Compliance

    Is your agency looking to maintain its Section 508 compliance as it develops new software or implements a new system? Karthik Consulting has helped agencies like the USDA Office of Communications and the Office of Naval Research develop software and procure systems that met Section 508 compliance to improve accessibility for all.

  • Conduct PIA Assessments

    When developing or procuring new systems that could handle Personally Identifiable Information (PII), a PIA assessment may be needed to evaluate legal compliance and protections in place to protect personal information. Karthik Consulting has helped agencies like the Office of Naval Research conduct Privacy Impact Assessments (PIA) regarding the usage of Personally Identifiable Information to protect the data of citizens and Federal employees.
