Security engineering is a broad term that spans across several areas of
security. From developing and implementing the security aspects during
system design, to architecting systems that are designed specifically for
security; organizations within the Federal Government perform security
engineering techniques every day. Security engineering encompasses several
aspects of security including:
- Security Requirements Analysis
- Security Architecture Design
- Secure Coding Practices
- Security Testing (IE Vulnerability Assessments, Penetration Testing,
- Security Operations and Maintenance
Security engineering can provide organizations with the comfort of
knowing that systems are designed with security in mind. It is important
that systems are engineered in a way that meets applicable standards and
regulations in order to stop attacks or protect from natural disasters.
Whether organizations are designing web applications or physical systems,
any system disruption or compromise can harm an organization or aid an
enemy’s attack. Implementing strong security engineering techniques or
designing systems that identify and deter an attack can be the difference
between a hacker’s success and failure.
SecureState provides Security Engineering of all aspects. Leveraging all
practice lines (Profiling, A&C, Risk Management, Forensics), SecureState is
uniquely positioned to assist organizations in designing systems to the
proper standards and regulations. Our commercial experience gives
SecureState’s engineers a unique understanding of implementing security into
systems in a way that does not impact the performance of those systems. Our
staff of experienced team members can provide testing, requirements
analysis, security configuration, implementation of security baselines, etc.
Additionally, all of SecureState’s security engineers are DoD 8570.01
compliant with certifications such as CISSP.
