Sensitive Procurement Solutions
In an ever increasing cyber threat environment, it is impossible to know with certainty where the next emerging threat will come from, and where it will be targeted. New attack techniques and threats surface daily that are aggressive, well-organized, well-funded and very sophisticated. Many are targeted at trying to steal trade secrets and innovations.
Securely managing contracts in this cyber threat environment can present an enormous challenge: from needing to coordinate with internal and external stakeholders, combined with intricacies within each group's mission requirements, and then overlaid with the need to enforce security protocols – all these needs coalesce to push the boundaries and complexities of the security responsibilities involved in managing a contract through its life cycle.
The ability to manage information system-related security risks in the contract management life cycle begins with having a secure computing environment, one that meets or exceeds U.S. Federal Agency standards for managing sensitive information. A cyber secure environment for contract management allows participants from government and corporations to coordinate projects and share information, while protecting Personal Identifiable Information (PII), as well as partner vendors' proprietary information, the bidding process and more. In addition, a secure contracts management system helps streamline the invoicing and procurement process, and supports FAR compliance and other regulations.
