LinkTec, a Sevatec Mentored Joint Venture, to provide advanced cybersecurity services to protect USCIS’ critical infrastructure
Fairfax, Virginia, December 01, 2020:
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has awarded LinkTec, LLC (LinkTec), a Joint Venture (JV) between Sevatec and CollabraLink, a 30-month Task Order valued at $19.3 million to provide ongoing support for USCIS Cyber Security Defense Services II (CSDS II). LinkTec will provide critical IT cybersecurity services to protect USCIS’ IT infrastructure, data and systems across their environment from cybersecurity threats.
Sevatec, which originally held the first USCIS CSDS contract, is able to provide LinkTec invaluable insight and support surrounding USCIS’ current environment and future needs. LinkTec will be supporting the USCIS Information Security Division (ISD) as it protects USCIS’ IT infrastructure and resources, information systems, and the information used in these environments from cybersecurity threats. The scope of the work includes: detecting security incidents; conducting application security code reviews; securing the USCIS network; maintaining security hygiene; and supporting the Continuous Diagnostics and Monitoring Program and Enterprise Security Engineering Team by integrating security into DevSecOps processes.
“USCIS remains a leader in advanced digital modernization across the government, making the importance of offensive and defensive cybersecurity critical to USCIS’ on-going mission. With the award of CSDS II to LinkTec, we are particularly grateful to have the opportunity to continue our expert service for this essential enterprise program,” stated Sonny Kakar, Founder and CEO of Sevatec.
“As an organization, CollabraLink is drawn toward agencies and programs that carry a profound impact on our national agenda. We feel quite honored to support USCIS’ cybersecurity mission needs for the safeguarding of our immigration system,” said Rahul Pandhi, CollabraLink’s Chief Executive Officer.
