Arlington, Virginia – January 28, 2013 –Fors Marsh Group LLC (FMG) announced today that the IT infrastructure necessary to support ongoing Department of Defense (DoD) personnel research has received Authority To Operate (ATO) in compliance with the United States Department of Defense (DoD) security and risk management requirements, as tested and verified by the Department of Defense Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP).
DIACAP certification is an intensive and stringent requirement for all information technology systems that operate on a DoD network. Federal and state agencies throughout the United States also rely on a DIACAP certification as a benchmark for internal security standards and as an assurance that a given system can be depended upon for internal use.
“This certification is another important marker indicating FMG’s expertise and commitment to supporting highly sensitive government research,” said Ben Garthwaite, director of business development. “This certification reinforces how seriously we take safeguarding client data.”
