Cybersecurity HACS Sales top 10m GSA Schedule 70

At Blackfyre, we are at the forefront of GSA Federal Schedule Consulting services, and we are excited to bring you the latest updates on the Highly Adaptive Cybersecurity Services (HACS) Special Item Numbers (SINs) available under the GSA IT Schedule 70 Contract. With the cybersecurity landscape ever-evolving, these SINs hold significant impact and importance.

A Two-Year Milestone

It has been two successful years since the release of the Highly Adaptive Cybersecurity Services (HACS) SINs under the GSA IT Schedule 70 Contract. Developed in collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security, these SINs aligns with the objectives outlined in the Cybersecurity National Action Plan (CNAP).

Undoubtedly, all GSA Schedule Contract holders undergo thorough vetting by GSA. Yet, companies approved under the GSA HACS SINs are subjected to additional requirements. This includes an oral technical evaluation that tests their cybersecurity capabilities. Currently, approximately 160 companies have received approval to offer one or more of the HACS SINs through their GSA IT Schedule 70 Contracts.

Exploring the HACS SINs

The Highly Adaptive Cybersecurity Services SINs are expertly structured to cater to various cybersecurity needs. To better understand, here's a simple breakdown of each SIN:

  • 132-45A | Penetration Testing - This involves security testing where assessors simulate real-world attacks to identify vulnerabilities and methods for bypassing security measures in applications, systems, or networks.
  • 132-45B | Incident Response - These services assist organizations in assessing the impact of cybersecurity incidents, removing adversaries from their systems, and restoring network security.
  • 132-45C | Cyber Hunt - Activities in this category address crisis or urgent situations within the cybersecurity domain, aiming to mitigate immediate and potential threats.
  • 132-45D | Risk and Vulnerability Assessment (RVA) - RVA involves assessing threats and vulnerabilities, identifying deviations from acceptable configurations and policies, evaluating risk levels, and recommending appropriate mitigation measures.

Rapid Growth in HACS SINs Sales

The GSA IT Schedule 70 HACS SINs have been gaining significant momentum, thanks to GSA's efforts to educate government buyers on their cybersecurity benefits. Sales for HACS SINs crossed the $2 million mark in their first full fiscal year. In fiscal year 2018, sales have more than tripled, surpassing $10 million in total. Notably, all sales have been attributed to federal customers, although state and local government buyers are eligible to purchase through the HACS SINs as well.
