M.C. Dean, Inc. provides expert resources for information systems (IS), information assurance (IA), and information technology (IT) support both as general disciplines and in the mission critical areas we support for our clients. In a recent Command Center development for a Federal agency, M.C. Dean, Inc. considered the unique information needs of a number of federal agencies who would be co-locating within our client’s facility. Chief among these needs was information security, which M.C. Dean, Inc. supported by first conducting a System Threat and Vulnerability Analysis, then designing a facility that met the agency’s needs relative to information assurance, information security, and overall information technology. These included RF/optical isolation, physical access control, RF shielding with proper grounding and isolation, as well as meeting all government accreditation requirements for information sharing at various levels.
