Arlington, VA (PRWEB) February 07, 2014
Ellumen Inc., a trusted provider of professional services and IT solutions, is expanding its cyber security practice following an award to provide technical support services in the areas of systems engineering, operations, and Information Assurance (IA) oversight for all Military Health system (MHS) Enterprise Infrastructure (EI) applications and systems. The award was made using the CIO-SP3 SB GWAC. As the Small Business Prime contractor, Ellumen has deployed a team of seasoned professionals with deep expertise in secure Communications and Computing Infrastructure (C&CI) for IT systems in the MHS environment.
“Our cyber security division is headed up by highly qualified individuals who have been working with the MHS for years and know the systems intimately,” Gail Belles, Ellumen’s Client Solutions Cyber Security Lead, commented. “When working with such large, complex systems it’s imperative to have experienced professionals such as ours to preempt and prevent major security threats.” Beacon Cloud Solutions (BCS), a small business with intimate knowledge of TMA’s IA needs, is supporting Ellumen on this project. BCS combines extensive backgrounds and experience in cloud computing, cyber security, security engineering, and application development to deliver the quality and expertise for success.
With the growth of Ellumen’s portfolio comes an expansion of its office to an additional facility in Fairfax, VA.
Ellumen also continues to strengthen the qualifications of its cyber security professionals. Ms. Belles, along with Ellumen’s Senior Security Architect, Mr. Dennis Seymour were both awarded the Healthcare Information Security and Privacy Practitioner Certification (HCISPP)—a certification administered by International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium, Inc., (ISC)²® that confirms a practitioner’s core knowledge and experience in security and privacy controls for personal health information.
