Systems Administration

The development of secure networks requires end-to-end expertise and a clear vision. CSCI employs a highly trained and technically diverse group of systems administrators capable of installing, supporting, and maintaining mid to large-size local area and wide area networks. Our team has deployed, supported, and managed various levels of complex certified DoD systems including environments within the Risk Management Framework.

CSCI experts not only possess a full breadth of knowledge but are also specialized and trusted with the most secure projects. Our systems administrators leverage their expertise to meet the challenging requirements set outlined in DoD Directive 8570 which provides the requirements for information assurance professionals with privileged accounts on DoD systems. Currently, all members of CSCI’s Systems Administration Group meet the requirements set forth in this directive. Our experts go through an extensive screening process which includes a DoD Single Scope Background Investigation.
