The critical need was to update an enhance pier connectivity, as these
systems are critically vital to the operational readiness of afloat units and
platforms that rely on these services from everything from Message Traffic to Voice over IP (VOIP) Services, to Information Assurance
Accreditation and Certification updates for their internal services
RAZOR sourced and managed a Cyber Security Workforce (CSWF) on assignment /Pier Mission Support Enterprise Pier Connectivity Architecture (EPCA) project, Resources included a Systems Administrators III and a Computer Security Systems Specialists, Cyber Specialist to oversee implementation and maintenance of advanced cyber security for the duration of 12 months.
RAZOR was successful at delivering systems administration support for
