Policy review and vulnerability assessments

Top-down national security review and assessment starts with knowledge of the policy objectives of national and defense leaders. Understanding the ramifications of existing and emerging national security policies is imperative to the success of government leaders and managers responsible for the delivery of programs and operations while mitigating attendant risks. SPA has an experienced staff with a proven track record for integration of policy considerations with the technical, operational, programmatic, and business aspects of national security issues in order to provide decision-makers with a holistic view of the drivers for decision.

SPA also conducts site survey and identification of physical security system vulnerabilities and solutions for national strategic assets. Our customers include:

  • Department of Defense (DoD)
  • Department of Energy (DoE)
  • Department of Homeland Security (DHS)

Our approach is done from the outside looking in, allowing us to identify vulnerabilities that checklist-driven approaches fail to recognize. We conduct mission planning and analysis from a red threat cell perspective to evaluate vulnerabilities and the adversary’s ability to exploit them.

SPA presents assessment results in a weighted, risk-based framework for programmatic decision makers to determine the most cost effective way to mitigate known vulnerabilities and prioritize funding.

Our approach is done from the outside looking in…not checklist driven.
