applied security policies to NAVMISSA/Bureau of Medicine
and Surgery (BUMED) network
routers and perimeter security devices to ensure
network-level security from outside attack or internal
exploitation of access permissions.

to identify vulnerabilities and to ensure that the
NAVMISSA/BUMED network complied with Navy and Military
Health System (MHS)

support, firewall security, IDS security, security
assessments, and other security practices. This support
