Every year, the United States faces an onslaught of threats from foreign governments, terrorist organizations, and individuals hell-bent on deploying anarchy and causing chaos. As a result, The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) mission of protecting American interests and assets has become much more complicated. The interconnectivity of critical systems, massive vulnerabilities in network security, and the sheer volume of information to be processed highlight the evolving nature of threats DHS must address daily. As DHS adapts to the rise in cyber threats in its mission to make the nation and its infrastructure more secure, Virginia-based NetCentrics is being deemed the top-choice partner for DHS and other federal agencies to provide cybersecurity, IT strategy, mission applications, infrastructure, and cloud services.

NetCentrics designs, implements, and maintains comprehensive security strategies and programs that protect and secure data and systems from external attackers and insider threats. “The world is more connected than ever before, and we harness the power of our experience to not only solve the problems of today but anticipate the needs of tomorrow,” says Lawrence O’Connor, President of NetCentrics. “With twentyfive years of experience working with the Department of Defense, we have been supporting DHS for the past decade, strategically safeguarding the country from impending cyber threats.”

The consultants working at NetCentrics are thought leaders who operate in the most challenging environments. They are resourceful and agile, creating new approaches that balance confidentiality and availability with usability. Having experience with cloud-based and “as a service” cybersecurity solutions such as the Joint Regional Security Stack (JRSS) and Security as a Service (SECaaS), the company facilitates cyber fusion centers to deliver best-inclass cybersecurity solutions for the government.

These cyber fusion centers establish collaboration across all teams involved in cybersecurity, resulting in better intelligence, faster response times, reduced costs, and increased productivity. Unlike traditional security operations, cyber fusion centralizes staff from various departments to work under one umbrella. They include fraud, loss prevention, cyber, IT, physical security, and product development.
In addition to implementing cyber fusion centers, NetCentrics also conducts intrusion detection while preventing ‘lateral movements’ from cyber attackers with the help of the most experienced and in-demand cyber warriors.

With its expertise rooted in experience and deep understanding of customer needs and operations, all bolstered by the support of an exceptionally well-trained staff, NetCentrics has already positioned itself as one of the nation’s most soughtafter cybersecurity service providers. O’Connor recounts an instance when one of NetCentrics’ intel analysts reported on emerging threats to the group. Strikingly, the analysts listed a company’s re-compete contract as one of the emerging threats. What followed highlights why cyber-fusion works: The cyber watch engineer on the team was listening to the team briefing, as always. As the meeting concluded, the intel analyst and the watch analyst went back to their workstations, both having heard each other’s reports in the meeting. The watch analyst continued to comb through his proxy notices and came across something odd. He observed that targeted individual messages in the proxy notices were being checked, and their data was being reconstructed and consolidated by the hacker in a folder. Under normal circumstances, this would not mean much. However, he realized that all of the individual’s data being reconstructed was critical in developing the company’s contract re-compete strategy. “So essentially, the cyber watch engineer heard the emerging threat from the intel fusion analyst and was able to put two-and-two together and identify a direct threat to which we could quickly respond,” O’Connor explains.

Looking to the future, O’Connor wants to ramp up AI usage and explore its farreaching capabilities. The cutting-edge technology will help the company deliver groundbreaking solutions that help government agencies shield the country from astronomically rising cyber threats. “As we look to diversity our clientele with our refined services, AI is where we’ll be investing,” he says.
