AIS’s Ken Zatyko presents at National Cyber Crime Conference hosted by the Massachusetts Attorney General
AIS was proud to present two papers at the National Cyber Crime Conference (April 22 – April 24, 2013) hosted by Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley. The presentations “Challenges in Cloud Forensics” and “Remote Digital Forensics” were delivered by AIS’s Vice President of Maryland Operations, Ken Zatyko.
Identifying and solving the challenges criminals pose while using cloud computing environments was the focus of the first presentation, while the second presentation highlighted the benefits of utilizing remote (virtual) experts at physical crime scenes to reduce forensics costs while not compromising quality. The supporting research will ultimately lead to the production of advanced digital forensics techniques that result in even greater fact finding capabilities and increased efficiency.
Mr. Zatyko stated: “It is exciting and an honor to be invited by the Massachusetts Attorney General to provide the presentations as part of this growing cyber-crime conference. We are confident that these efforts will assist law enforcement professionals and contribute to the advancement of cyber security practice in the United States.”

AIS Awarded $7 Million Subcontract by Lockheed Martin to Support Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center
AIS to Provide Cyber Forensics, Cyber Analytics, and R&D
Assured Information Security, Inc. (AIS) announced today that it continues to conduct work in its first calendar year under a $7 million subcontract by Lockheed Martin. In this partnership with Lockheed Martin, AIS will provide cyber forensics and information technology solutions for the Department of Defense (DoD) Cyber Crime Center (DC3) under Lockheed Martin’s prime contract to support the center. The award is for one base year with four option years. This is new work for AIS and expands the company’s growing cyberspace solutions business.
DC3 sets standards for digital evidence processing and analysis for any DoD investigation that requires digital forensic support to detect, enhance, or recover digital media, including audio and video. The center assists in DoD criminal, counterintelligence, counterterrorism, fraud investigations and DoD counterintelligence activities. It is the focal point for cyber threat sharing with defense industry partners in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) Cyber Security/Information Assurance Program. AIS provides Lockheed Martin and the DoD with qualified digital forensics experts and software engineers to research and design forensic tools, and enhance cyber counterintelligence analysis.
According to Steve Flint, AIS Chief Operating Office, “AIS offers cyber solutions that will help Lockheed Martin and the Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center continue to excel as a National Cyber Center.”
AIS Chief Executive Officer Charles Green said, “AIS’s ongoing investment in forensics continues to serve one of the cyber community’s hottest markets. We are proud to be a Lockheed Martin partner and part of one of the largest accredited digital forensics laboratories in the world.”
Assured Information Security (AIS), Inc., of Rome, N.Y., is one of six companies (three small businesses and three large businesses) to be awarded a contract to provide cyber research and solutions under the Agile Cyber Technology (ACT) contract. ACT was awarded by the Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) Information Directorate, headquartered in Rome, N.Y. and has a $300,000,000 ceiling with most work performed locally over the next five years.
AIS’s co-founder, Charles Green, stated, “AIS has grown from a small cyber research company founded in Central New York to a national cyber research contributor. This award from the Air Force Research Laboratory recognizes our continued value in providing advances in cyber research & development and our ability to conduct rapid cyber integration. AIS, and our tightly-coupled team of partners, including large and small businesses, as well as universities are committed to assisting the Information Directorate’s Science & Technology vision of cyber superiority”.
Dr. Bay, AIS’s Chief Scientist, stated “The ACT contract is important to the cyber security science and technology community because it establishes a funding vehicle that has a diversity of technologies and collaboration built-in. Under ACT, we can draw on and manage a pre-organized team of industry and academic researchers to respond to technology needs in a fraction of the time it might otherwise require. It also facilitates the transition of results beyond AFRL and the Air Force.”
Dr. Igor Plonisch, AIS’s Director of Strategic Initiatives, added that “This is a great day not only for AIS but for the Central New York cyber research community…The Information Directorate, the cyber research companies, and academia which have developed in Central New York, have underscored our region’s prominence in cyber research and development.”
