Enlightened's cybsecurity team helps clients meet challenging compliance requirements.

Challenge

BLS engaged Enlightened to provide a security assessment of three of their data collection systems to ensure they comply with NIST 800-53 requirements, and to identify any discrepancies that may have been present within BLS’ security infrastructure.

Approach

The Enlightened team undertook a thorough data collection and discovery process, followed by a rigorous assessment of BLS’ information systems through the application of three (3) security scans which included NESSUS, Nmap, and Ethereal. These tasks were completed in accordance with NIST 800-53 which ensured all necessary security controls were implemented.

Results

With the project completed on time and on budget, Enlightened pinpointed BLS’ security deficiencies and established action plans for resolving the issues which BLS was able to implement to prevent the misuse of critical information systems.
