Federal Contractor Offerings
Veterans Cybersecurity Group (VCSG) is a SDVOSB with professionals representing decades of experience working on Federal Cybersecurity and Information Assurance engagements. From the original DOD Information Technology Security Certification and Accreditation Process (DITSAP) to the current NIST Risk Management Framework, VCSG has assisted federal agencies in meeting their obligations mandated by The Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014 (FISMA 2014).
Cybersecurity Workforce Augmentation
Federal Contractors are encouraged to partner with VCSG to fill address their cybersecurity workforce requirements. Veterans Cybersecurity Group was founded with the goal of addressing this Cybersecurity Workforce crisis by training, mentoring, and placing Active-Duty US Service Members as they transition into the civilian workforce. Our Federal Cybersecurity Professional Program has a team of recruiters that go out to US Military Bases presenting the program through the military Transition Assistance Program (TAP).
Once enrolled in the Federal Cybersecurity Professional program service members are trained to meet the base-line certification requirements of DoD IAT Level III (CISSP, etc.) and then undergo customized training, and on-the-job mentoring to meet the specific skills requirements of our Federal Partners.

It is currently pending rulemaking completion (expected between late 2022 to late 2023). When fully implemented, CMMC will be a DoD contractual requirement and a condition for award.
