HUNTSVILLE – Huntsville cybersecurity specialist Sentar has been selected by FORUM – formerly known as FedHealthIT – as a FORUM Health IT Award recipient in collaboration with the Naval Information Warfare Center and Defense Health Agency.
Sentar and its government customers will be recognized June 7 at the FORUM Innovation Awards and Networking Reception in Washington, D.C.
Selected by a panel of peers for driving innovation across the federal health community, Sentar is being recognized for two programs – NIWC Atlantic Defense Health IT and Joint Operational Medical Information System Risk Management support; and NIWC Atlantic DHIT Enterprise Risk Management Program Office support.
“Both award-winning teams, the ERM PO support team and the JOMIS RMF support team are the result of the alignment of Sentar’s mission with the goals of NIWC Atlantic,” said April Nadeau, senior VP of Sentar. “Most importantly, both programs achieved milestones in continuous monitoring to enhance medical device security.
“Our valuable industry collaboration with NIWC Atlantic, as well as our continued recognition from FORUM, serves as a high standard that the Sentar team strives to uphold.”
The DHA has been undergoing significant enterprise changes requiring new approaches to accomplish RM framework activities. Each medical enterprise system offers distinct capabilities involving an in-depth RMF evaluation while pursuing an Authorization to Operate on the enterprise network.
Sentar’s collaboration with NIWC Atlantic ERM PO innovates processes to capture risk data, create shared artifacts, and build custom security plans using automation for over 140 unique system enclaves.
The ERM PO support team created mechanisms to accelerate ATO periods for enclaves and medical devices alike, while also delivering services compliant within Department of Defense RMF constraints.
The JOMIS RMF support team consistently innovates processes to meet the increasing demand of rapid acquisition and securely provisioned systems.
NIWC Atlantic’s DHIT JOMIS RM support team has developed a pathway to combine both acquisition and authorization processes into a flexible and comprehensive agile approach that allows for development and accreditation of systems within constrained timelines.
The JOMIS RM team’s innovative process adapts the DoD RMF to a fast-paced operations environment while simultaneously targeting software development to deployment initiatives.
