Eliminating Threats, Securing Tomorrow

Conflicts today extend far beyond the battlefield. Cyber threats pose increasingly severe risks to personal and national security. Pragmatics is an innovator in developing cyber-secure solutions to protect information systems, applications and networks. We serve as trusted partners to federal agencies and U.S. military clients who demand the highest levels of personal integrity, technical prowess, and vertical expertise.


Pragmatics assists several DoD clients in the preparation of their Assessment & Authorization (A&A) packages to ensure compliance with the DoD Risk Management Framework (RMF).  In our role as the Information System Security Officer (ISSO), Pragmatics has been responsible for conducting the review of end users’ A&A packages and making recommendations to appropriate Security Control Assessors (SCAs) to grant a client system or site authorization to operate or connect.  While conducting these reviews, Pragmatics determines whether security vulnerabilities have been addressed or mitigated to acceptable levels and that A&A packages are complete, and we prepare the final recommendations to the SCAs noting the absence of system vulnerabilities to the client enterprise.  We have also introduced quality controls into our workflow to improve process timelines and reduce unnecessary errors.
