GSA Cybersecurity HACS Sin

Explore GSA's Highly Adaptive Cybersecurity Services (HACS) with Blackfyre, a leading GSA Federal Schedule Consulting firm. Discover opportunities for your company's cyber defense contribution.

GSA Cybersecurity HACS SIN: An Introduction

As Blackfyre, a premier GSA Federal Schedule Consulting firm, we lend our expertise and excitement to the deconstruction of the General Services Administration's Highly Adaptive Cybersecurity Services (HACS) Special Item Numbers (SINs). This new provision to the GSA IT Schedule 70 Contract signifies a strong governmental pledge to secure cyber health and opens a new window of opportunity for enterprises to contribute to the nation's cyber defenses.

The HACS SINs inauguration, prompted by the President's Cybersecurity National Action Plan (CNAP), has received a significant boost with a 35% increase in federal cybersecurity spending according to the 2017 budget report. This initiative brings into sharp focus the vital role of robust cybersecurity services and further indicates the government's readiness to invest significantly in this sector. As MAS consultants and GSA schedule consultants, Blackfyre stands ready to guide your enterprise through this promising market landscape.

GSA IT Schedule 70 HACS SINs: An Overview

  • 132-45A Penetration Testing: Probing security measures to identify likely vulnerabilities in an application, system, or network which adversaries could exploit.
  • 132-45B Incident Response: Offering services to organizations impacted by cybersecurity breaches, helping them comprehend the extent, eliminate threats, and restore a more secure state.
  • 132-45C Cyber Hunt: Reacting to crises or urgent situations to alleviate immediate and potential threats.
  • 132-45D Risk and Vulnerability Assessment (RVA): These assessments spot potential threats, weaknesses, and give viable recommendations for mitigation.

The SINs enable an accelerated access to federal agencies for pre-vetted enterprises offering these critical services, revamping the procurement process and enhancing the government's cybersecurity infrastructure.

Applying for GSA’s HACS SINs

If your enterprise already holds a GSA IT Schedule 70 Contract, you need to submit a modification to include the new SINs and relevant labor categories. Compliance to this involves providing necessary standard details and successfully passing a technical oral evaluation. Blackfyre, equipped with a team of federal supply schedule consultants and GSA schedule consulting experts, can help in preparing your proposal to meet the stringent requirements laid down by GSA.

For those not presently owning a GSA IT Schedule 70 Contract, you will need to undergo the complete GSA Schedule proposal process. This could potentially consume around 45 days under GSA’s FASt Lane Program. The quick review and awarding of HACS related services reflect GSA's commitment to rapidly strengthening cybersecurity services.
