Countering risks and vulnerabilities to domestic investments requires in-depth subject matter expertise to develop methodologies and conduct assessments that communicate risks, secure investments, and formulate acquisition safeguards to diminish the ease in which foreign entities, governments, or compromised domestic nationals may interact with existing and future IT development and infrastructure.
Knowesis assessments experts support NRMC’s informed decision making by developing risk mitigation plans for foreign investments evaluated through the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) process; restricting future acquisitions of and/or removing existing information technology hardware, software, and services from Federal networks; and reviewing entities to participate in sensitive information sharing programs
Department of Homeland Security, National Risk Management Center
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Risk Management Center (NRMC) is the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s (CISA) planning, analysis, and collaboration office that works to identify and address the most significant risks to the Nation’s critical infrastructure. The NRMC works in close coordination with all other parts of CISA as well as the Federal Interagency, state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, and critical infrastructure owners and operators. Of considerable concern to NRMC is the risk posed to the Nation and its assets and interests by adversarial actors exercising influence over or operating through private entities.
