A State-Of-The-Art Cybersecurity Operations Center (CSOC) Launched by Planet Defense LLC in Stafford County, Virginia

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The creation and implementation of a state-of-the-art Cybersecurity Operations Center (CSOC) that is a core element of the Virginia Smart Community Testbed based in Stafford County, Virginia, was announced today by Planet Defense LLC and its government and industry partners. Planet Defense LLC is a global cybersecurity consulting, engineering and training company headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia.

According to David Ihrie, CTO of the Virginia Innovation Partnership Corporation (VIPC) and Executive Committee member of the Virginia Smart Community Testbed (VSCT), "Planet Defense's CSOC represents a major leap forward in the integration of essential cybersecurity services provided by independently-operating Cybersecurity Centers as part of Smart Community initiatives that support Critical Infrastructure capabilities."

"This new CSOC, led by Planet Defense, demonstrates proof-of-concept that communities nationwide can now rapidly and cost-effectively improve their smart capabilities in robustly defending against cybersecurity threats and attacks directed at their respective entities," said John Holden, Director of Economic Development and Tourism for Stafford County and Executive Committee member of the Virginia Smart Community Testbed (VSCT). He further emphasized that, "A CSOC enables local communities to become more efficient and cyber-secure, notably those smaller communities without resources to hire trained cyber-defense staff."

Planet Defense's specialized CSOC Analysts can monitor and assess potential cyber threats in real time, additionally streamlining their processing of threat intelligence data and subsequent proactive responses to cyberattacks. "Such operational capabilities will then make it possible for personnel in similar Smart Community CSOCs across America to achieve the same outstanding results consistently," noted Dr. Michael G. Oehler, Director of Operations for the new CSOC.

GridBright® completes Oracle Utilities Network Management System (NMS) implementation at Colquitt EMC, extending the reach of full-featured utility network management

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- State-of-the-art electric utility network management systems are no longer only possible in the realm of large utility organizations. The needed sophistication to manage the modern grid does not recognize any utility network as too small to pose operating challenges. But the cost of these systems can be too high for smaller utilities to absorb. GridBright, in its implementation of Oracle Utilities Network Management System at Colquitt, has changed the game for smaller but not less essential utility operations.

"In the past, many COOP utilities could not afford the cost of implementing a full feature NMS. We changed that by developing a template to implement NMS/OMS at smaller utilities cutting implementation costs significantly," said Tom Servas, executive vice president at GridBright.

GridBright is a member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).

At Colquitt, GridBright implemented Oracle Network Management System over 12 months. The implementation spanned the project's entire lifecycle from "March 2021" to "February 2022" and included the integration of outage map capabilities from DataCapable.

"From start to finish, the project was amazing and has dramatically increased our ability to manage not only outages, but the resources involved in restoring power to our members. Gridbright's approach made an affordable deployment of Oracle Network Management System possible. Engaging GridBright was the right move and took the worry out of our migration. Everyone involved with our project brought a wealth of knowledge, quality, and commitment to meeting our goals," said Jeffery Patterson, vice president, Information Technology at Colquitt EMC.

This advance in the viability of more cost-efficient NMS implementation is timely as the US Government begins the implementation of the 2021 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). In addition, there is a specific focus on technology enhancing grid flexibility and the cyber threats presented to rural and municipal utilities, specifically in that legislation.

"With Colquitt's project as a blueprint, COOPs can now implement Oracle's Network Management System at a price that works for them," said Brad Williams, vice president of Industry Strategy at Oracle Energy and Water. "Now, COOPs can benefit from a full-featured solution that enables them to manage every piece for their operation - from distribution to customer-owned grid devices, to improve reliability and customer service even in the most extreme circumstances."

With more than 30% of Americans being served by public power utilities or MUNIs, it is expected that utilities like Colquitt will require NMS offerings like Oracle's Network Management System to support achieving the national energy goals of the IIJA. With GridBright's approach, the cost is decreasing as a barrier to these utilities' ability to implement network management systems that meet their challenges.

About GridBright®:

GridBright is a consulting firm specializing in secure grid systems integration. We provide a comprehensive set of utility systems strategy consulting, business case development, procurement process support, and system implementation and integration services. Our capabilities span all domains of information and operations technologies and systems deployed in utilities across the United States. Learn more at: https://www.gridbright.com/

By Light Awarded $82M VA Contract

MCLEAN, Va. -- By Light Professional IT Services LLC (By Light) has been awarded the My HealtheVet (MHV) Development, Security and Operations (DevSecOps) contract by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Valued at $82M over five (5) years, this contract provides for the continued support and development of VA's Veteran-facing Electronic Health portal.

"Team By Light considers it an honor to continue our long and valued partnership with VA to provide innovative DevSecOps solutions to the MHV Program with a Scaled Agile and Digital Services Playbook approach," says Bill Sackewitz, By Light Senior VP for Digital Transformation. "Our team has invested heavily in DevSecOps, User Centered Design, and Lean Agile Product Delivery methods to hasten and improve value delivered to the customer. Our mission in By Light's Chief Strategy Office is to help our teams and our clients adopt new ways of working that lead to better user outcomes."

The MHV patient portal provides healthcare communications and coordination for millions of Veterans, caretakers, and providers. The MHV program is a nationwide initiative intended to improve the overall health of Veterans. It provides an eHealth portal, a secure environment where Veterans can view and manage their personal health record online and access health information, health assessments, and electronic services. Online health resources will enable and encourage patient/provider collaboration, as clinicians will be able to communicate with Veterans more easily.

The online environment will complement existing Veterans Health Administration (VHA) clinical business practices and be transformational in the way health care is delivered and managed. Like other VA systems MHV will eventually be integrated into VA.gov that will be accessible to Veterans from MHV, or other web portals as identified by the government.

"Our team has been supporting the development and expansion of MHV since 2012 and is dedicated to furthering the evolution of one of the U.S. Government's largest and most important technical programs benefiting those who have served," states Matt Bain, MHV Program Director at By Light. "We are very proud of our ten years of supporting MHV eHealth delivery capabilities and look forward to further deliver new and innovative solutions that support VA's Office of Connected Care ecosystem and improve the experience for Veterans and their care givers."

"We are happy to have By Light back and to continue the great work we have done together over the past decade," notes Greg Kirk, MHV Program Manager. "The MHV solution will continue to evolve with the DevSecOps contract, and the results will ultimately deliver better products and services faster to the Veterans."
