Secure Ideas is a Woman-Owned cybersecurity company that provides a range of security testing and consulting services to businesses, government agencies, and other organizations. One question that potential partners may have is whether Secure Ideas serves as a subcontractor for prime contractors on government contracts. The answer is yes.

Secure Ideas has a long history of past performance in the government space, having provided cybersecurity services to a variety of government agencies at the federal, state, and local levels.   This experience has given the company an understanding of the unique security challenges that government agencies face and the requirements they must meet to comply with various regulations and standards.  (You can download our capabilities statement with past performance.)

One way that Secure Ideas partners with government contractors is by performing penetration testing and vulnerability assessments as part of IT services and development contracts. For example, the company may be brought in to provide security testing and consulting services during the development of a new government system or application. This ensures that security is considered from the outset of the project, rather than being an afterthought that is bolted on at the end.

In addition to working on HACS contracts, Secure Ideas' services are also in line with Highly Adaptive Cybersecurity Services (HACS) contracts. HACS is a set of cybersecurity services offered by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) that are designed to help federal agencies better manage their cybersecurity risks. These services are divided into four categories: High-Value Asset (HVA) Assessments, Risk and Vulnerability Assessment (RVA), Cyber Hunt, and Incident Response. Secure Ideas provides services that fall under the HVA and RVA categories.

Overall, Secure Ideas is well-positioned to partner with government contractors and provide a range of cybersecurity services that meet the unique needs of government agencies. With a long history of past performance in the government space, expertise in HACS-related services, and experience working on IT services and development contracts, Secure Ideas is a trusted partner for government contractors looking to improve their cybersecurity posture.  Feel free to reach out if you would like to partner with us.
