Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE:CSC) today announced the formation of its Global Security Solutions (GSS) organization. GSS unites CSC's existing security capabilities, provided by the company's Global Information Security Services (GISS) organization, with those added through last year's DynCorp acquisition under a single global organization.
The new organization offers high-performance security solutions that ensure protection across all aspects of an organization - from facilities and systems to people, information and continuity of operations - providing more comprehensive and cost-effective risk management.
Under GSS, CSC's commercial customers benefit from access to an extensive knowledge base and advanced technologies gained through experience securing government agencies worldwide. Government clients benefit from access to commercially proven best practices.
Chris Steinbach, who previously led CSC's GISS, will lead the GSS organization and report to Timothy Sheahan, president of CSC's Enforcement Security and Intelligence (ESI) organization. GSS client offerings include security consulting; compliance management; identity and access management; monitoring, alerting and response management; background screening services; and planning and design of physical security systems.
Current ESI client programs that apply GSS services include enterprise resource planning, enterprise management systems, information operations and assurance development, information technology (IT) support, systems engineering and customer relationship management.
"For more than 30 years, we have developed and maintained an unparalleled level of excellence in improving the IT security of our clients," said Sheahan. "Today, organizations must address threats to and vulnerabilities within all organizational assets - including IT systems, people and facilities. GSS allows CSC to leverage extensive global experience and a comprehensive capabilities portfolio to help clients operate more securely and maximize return on investments."
