Certifications & Awards
Founded in 1991, TWM has been one of the leaders in the evolution of Information Assurance (IA) within the Federal Government.
In support of the President's Cybersecurity National Action Plan (CNAP), the General Services Administration (GSA) Information Technology (IT) Schedule 70 has added new Special Item Numbers (SINs) for Highly Adaptive Cybersecurity Services (HACS). These new services provide GSA government partners access to key, pre-vetted support services.
TWM was awarded HACS SINs. This accomplishment was done through TWM Associates, Inc. (TWM) "re-qualifying" under the GSA Schedule 70 (TWM has held a GSA Schedule 70 over 20 years). TWM then passed the rigorous oral evaluation whereby GSA partnered with DHS evaluating TWM key personnel in the SIN specific scenarios and questions.
TWM is pleased to have been awarded these HACS SIN as part of our GSA Schedule 70 (GS35F315CA) contract. Sub HACS areas TWM sought and was awarded: Penetration Testing, Incident Response Services, and Risk and Vulnerability Assessments. TWM is one of a few companies providing these services.
• Penetration Testing: Security testing in which assessors mimic real-world attacks to identify methods for circumventing the security features of an application, system or network.
• Incident Response Services: Services that help organizations impacted by a cybersecurity compromise determine the extent of the incident, remove the adversary from their systems, and restore their networks to a more secure state.
• Risk and Vulnerability Assessments: Assessments of threats and vulnerabilities to determine deviations from acceptable configurations, or enterprise or local policies; to gauge levels of risk; and to develop or recommend appropriate mitigation countermeasures.
We would like to thank our TWM customers having provided us the performance opportunities in these areas previously to allow us to qualify for these new services. We would like to thank our TWM personnel (past and present) who have performed and continue to perform in these areas. We look forward to our continued partnership with the Government and non-government entities in these areas.
