OnPoint is proud to announce that we have earned a Superior rating resulting from a security vulnerability assessment (SVA) performed by the U.S. Defense Security Service (DSS). This annual security assessment evaluates a company based on the standards set forth by the U.S. National Industrial Security Program (NISP).
DSS provides military services, Defense Agencies, federal agencies, and contractor facilities with security support services for the protection of U.S. and foreign government sensitive information and technologies. In January, DSS completed an SVA of OnPoint and found that the security program not only meets but exceeds NISP standards in many areas. According to DSS, a “Superior” rating is reserved for contractors that consistently and fully implement the requirements of the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM) in an effective fashion, resulting in a superior security posture, compared with other contractors of similar size and complexity. OnPoint proved to DSS that we have documented procedures that heighten the security awareness of employees and foster a spirit of cooperation within the security community. Fewer than 10 percent of approximately 13,500 facilities that DSS oversees receive a Superior rating.
Tim Smith, President of OnPoint Consulting said, “We are extremely excited to have achieved DSS’ highest rating as this shows the hard work that all our employees put in to protecting our nation’s information and technology. OnPoint recognizes that the U.S. Government places a high level of trust in our employees and our company, and this rating is just one example of OnPoint’s ability to earn that trust.”
