Homeland Security Department Tasks BreakPoint Labs to Oversee Zero Trust Practices

Cybersecurity company BreakPoint Labs has announced that it will provide zero trust oversight support to the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of the Inspector General under a potential 5.5-year contract.

DHS awarded the contract under the General Services Administration’s Highly Adaptive Cybersecurity Services vehicle, BreakPoint said Monday.

The company is expected to conduct technical security assessments, deliver technology expertise and independently manage zero trust requirements across DHS.

BreakPoint CEO Thomas George said his company would shed light on the department’s zero trust progress and aid it in identifying potential advancement and implementation opportunities.

According to BreakPoint, it will utilize emerging cyber defense technology and high-value asset cybersecurity assessment methodologies to support the DHS OIG.

Daniel Coulter, a cybersecurity adviser at the department’s science and technology office, recently shared that DHS’ implementation plan is focused on developing standards to evaluate the integrity of zero-trust solutions. He told attendees of the 930Gov conference in December that the department wants to improve zero-trust technology beyond what commercial capabilities currently provide.
