|We have the motto of “Start slow in order to move fast.” We take the time to define the scope of the project to ensure all parties are in sync. We develop an integrated master schedule (IMS) and confirm we have the required network, access, and contacts to begin the process.|
|We provide a Request for Information (RFI) and review existing documentation. We may conduct interviews, working groups and surveys/questionnaires. We use this time to ask clarifying questions and develop an understanding of your environment and GRC maturity.|
|We draw on our audit, compliance, risk management and automation experience to develop and discuss detailed recommendations for improvement. We collaborate with you to develop training, guides, policies, templates, and pathways to authorization. We also develop automation and data strategies necessary to operationalize RMF within your GRC environment. This culminated body of work will be delivered as an implementation plan, providing you with the foundation needed to practice security techniques and ultimately minimize the risk to your cyber landscape.|
|We develop a Roadmap to ensure project advancement and success. The Roadmap organizes project-specific recommendations meant to bolster initiatives already in place and set milestones to keep progressing forward. We outline the criteria by identifying project owners, dependencies, what processes can be streamlined and opportunities to take advantage of. With our experience, we provide recommendations on timelines to ensure all stakeholder feedback is heard and integrated in a timely manner.|
We collaborate with your team to implement the developed process and strategies within the prescribed timeframe. Arlo has partnerships with industry leaders in automation, training, pen testing and SOC activities. Arlo’s primary focus is the development of people and processes in support of the GRC environment. There are many security tools and automation-focused companies. After the development of the implementation plan, we take on the role of integrator. We build bridges and communicate efficiently between different vendors, tools, program managers, decision makers, and implementers within your agency.
Our goal is to meet you where you are. If you do not have defined tools or resources internal to the organization, we have trusted and vetted partners that address every required capability area. Our goal is to assist with the effectiveness, efficiency, and cost effectiveness of managing security and privacy concerns.
We focus on six major initiatives or focus areas when developing a GRC program. These include training, automation, control standards, governance, documentation, and strategic communications. Click here to learn more about these initiatives.
There is an urgent need to further strengthen the underlying information systems, component products and services that we depend on in every sector of critical infrastructure—ensuring that the systems, products, and services are sufficiently trustworthy throughout the system development life cycle (SDLC) and can provide the necessary resilience to support the economic and national security interests of the United States. The federal government prioritizes system modernization, increased use of automation and the consolidation, standardization, and optimization of federal systems and networks to strengthen protection of high value assets.
