RAND Earns “Outstanding” CCRI Grade — SecureStrux recently announced that they provided CCRI expertise and assistance for global research leader RAND Corporation. SecureStrux performed the CCRI Staff Assistance Visit (SAV) of RANDs Santa Monica Offices and the success of this partnership resulted in an “Outstanding” grade. RANDs score is one of the highest scores earned by any DoD organization since Phase III & IV was implemented by USCYBERCOM.

A CCRI “is a DoD-wide program that is required by both the SIPRNet Connection Approval Process (CAP) and NIPRNet CAP to validate the site’s current network configuration, status of the site’s Authority to Connect (ATC), and the security readiness of the site under direction of the USCYBERCOM.” SecureStrux worked very closely with RAND stakeholders over several months to ensure that all CND Directives, Contributing Factors and all technical security requirements were in adherence to DoD cyber standards.

“RAND’s ‘Outstanding’ grade is a testament to the organization and CCRI program,” noted Shane Cairns, SecureStrux’s CCRI Team Lead. “In addition, SecureStrux’s knowledge of the CCRI processes, experience with the complexities of the Cyber Inspection, and application of a thorough methodology and approach allowed us to successfully provide a ‘path to success’ for this research leader.”
