< Back to news

Phacil, an award-winning company delivering leading technology solutions to the Federal Government, announced a contract win with the Department of Education’s (ED) Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) for the performance of Information Assurance (IA) services.

Phacil will provide programmatic, IA, risk management, security engineering and services support for the execution of a Department-wide Information Security Services and Risk Management (RM) program. The objective of the award is to establish and implement the ED-wide processes and management controls necessary to enable effective risk decisions, ensure tighter management and oversight of IA and security engineering practices, and improve program execution. Appropriate use of IA and security engineering methodologies and best practices will assure ED IT project managers and leadership that an appropriate level of security is implemented, sufficient controls are in place to adequately protect assets, and the information systems are operating at a satisfactory level of residual risk.

“As an agency that provides educational and employment opportunities for U.S. citizens, the Department of Education handles a great deal of sensitive, personal information that requires the most rigorous operational security controls,” said Phacil Vice President of Operations, Harry Bartel. “We are honored to work with our newest customer to implement stringent information security safeguards.”
