Hunter Strategy to Continue Providing Cyber Expertise to NIH Director Office
Hunter Strategy, a cyber risk and DevSecOps firm headquartered in Washington, D.C., is set to continue providing cyber modernization strategies and solutions to the Office of the Director within the National Institutes of Health.
Work falls under a subcontract extension that the firm first secured with Digital Management Inc. in 2020. Efforts will revolve around supporting the OD’s design and application of cross-cutting zero trust tactics as part of its defense in depth strategy, Hunter Strategy said.
“Given the revolutionary role and global impact NIH played in combating COVID-19, we are fully committed to delivering advanced security solutions to help protect and defend against cyber risk,” said Kevin Belanga, Hunter Strategy’s chief strategy officer.
According to Belanga, the firm will leverage its technical understanding of complex cyber challenges and its capabilities in the information technology and operational technology space to help the NIH respond to public health needs.
As a subcontractor to DMI, Hunter Strategy previously offered a range of cyber expertise to improve the cybersecurity posture and stability across NIH applications, systems and environments in line with Federal Information Security Management Act requirements.
The subcontract then required Hunter Strategy consultants to modernize OD industrial control systems, support cloud adoption efforts and develop a third party supply chain risk management program.
In addition to the NIH, Hunter Strategy supports federal agencies such as the departments of Defense, Labor and Commerce.
