Incident Response Assistance

Introducing the National Security Cyber Assistance Program (NSCAP)

ABSTRACT

The demand to improve the robustness and survivability of National Security Systems (NSS) continues unabated, as each year the number and sophistication of cyber attacks from a variety of sources—nations, criminal and hacking groups, and individuals with malicious intent—increase. As a measure to address this problem, the National Security Agency/Information Assurance Directorate (NSA/IAD) has launched the NSCAP accreditation initiative, designed to make available a pool of qualified cyber-security service providers for supporting NSS owners and operators when similar services are not readily available from within their organizations. The NSCAP accredits service providers who meet NSA-developed criteria in the field of Cyber Incident Response Assistance (CIRA). In the future, NSCAP may be expanded to include the accreditation of Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) service providers.
