IT Security & Risk Management Services Security threats continue to evolve as cyber capabilities emerge and cyber attackers become increasingly capable. Sound governance, effective security risk management, and Federal regulatory compliance can only be achieved by implementing a comprehensive and strategic security risk management program. G&B provides expertise in Security Risk Management, Reporting and Certification and Accreditation (C&A), Security Strategic Planning, Identity, Credentialing and Access Management, Disaster Recovery and Continuity of Operations, Continuous Security Monitoring, Forensics, and Penetration Testing.
G&B promotes a risk-based approach to implementing comprehensive security solutions. This approach allows for optimum use of limited resources to achieve maximum protection for your most critical and sensitive assets. G&B has developed and helped implement security programs for many clients. G&B is proud of our successful track record of supporting Federal Agencies in transitioning from mere compliance to an enterprise wide, risk-based model supported by true defense-in-depth security solutions.
System Design, Development & Integration Services We provide a framework of very structured deliverables, reviews, and independent quality assessments, enforcing rigid disciplines to ensure the success of large systems development and enhancement efforts. This tailored framework allows more iterative development required for proof of concept or rapid application development efforts. Our managed approach to development projects produces better software at lower costs while ensuring maximum quality, reliability, and maintainability.
Configuration/Change Management - G&B's change management support consists of two parts: configuration identification and configuration control. Before changes to a configuration can be managed and controlled, G&B establishes a baseline configuration. The baseline configuration identification includes hardware, software, and networking, facility management, operating procedures, and staffing skill sets. G&B uniquely identifies each item in the baseline configuration and categorizes the item according to whether the item is in production, evaluation, development, or awaiting remedial action. During configuration control, G&B applies a standard process to monitor and control changes to the baseline configuration.
Health IT Services The world of Health IT is changing. New technologies, responsibilities, and regulations all impact Health IT, from initial planning to day-to-day operations. As the new healthcare bill is implemented, healthcare service delivery will face new challenges.
G&B Solutions is here to assist the Health Care community thrive in the face of continuously evolving demands. Change is arriving rapidly, from the accelerated implementation of the Electronic Health Record to increased privacy and security concerns and Health IT standardization and consolidation.

We know that with first-rate project management practices, agencies can more efficiently realize optimal IT solutions.

Capital Planning, Investment Control, and EA Services Sound Investment and Good Governance
As it becomes increasingly competitive for federal agencies to procure funding for new information technology (IT) programs, knowledge and experience with the Capital Planning and Investment Control (CPIC) process is critical. Successful execution of this rigorous process is necessary to justify any major expenditure in IT. A good CPIC Program provides a structured, integrated approach to managing IT investments. It ensures that all IT investments align with the agency's mission and support business needs while minimizing risks and maximizing returns throughout the investment's lifecycle. G&B utilizes CPIC as the primary process for helping clients make investment decisions, assess investment process effectiveness, and refine investment related policies and procedures. G&B has experience applying the CPIC process as mandated by the Clinger-Cohen Act, to ensure agencies use a disciplined process to acquire, use, maintain, and dispose of information technology. We provide our clients OMB Exhibit 300 and Exhibit 53 preparation and maintenance, as well as independent reviews to analyze any drafts, new or existing OMB Exhibit 300/53 related documentation. CPIC is a comprehensive approach to align an agency's capital planning and investment control strategy to align with business imperatives that meet fundamental agency financial requirements.
