October 2006 Solutions Engineering received "The
Assistant Secretary's Award for Excellence"
from the Department of State, due to the design
and completion of CENTRIC. CENTRIC is an automated
risk monitoring and mitigation database and software
platform for protecting all of the embassies and
Department of State facilities throughout the
world. Risk elements (threat, vulnerability, importance)
are detected early on and monitored throughout
their life-cycle. Mitigation measures are offered
from a datastore of previously successful measures.
Projects are initiated where required. This was
the first performance-based dashboard implemented
by the Department of State and the first application
installed on their secure network. The entire
project of the first release was completed in
16 months after award.
