Wet Plant Administration
SFOC Operations and Maintenance (O&M) is a specialized niche service that requires industry-specific engineering and technical experience along with industry and Government contracting expertise. GBS has this critical experience and understanding of wet plant administration (WPA) and is a member of the International Cable Protection Committee (ICPC), the international submarine cable authority providing leadership and guidance on issues related to submarine cable security and reliability.
Document management (DM) is the systematic capture, control, storage and retrieval of documents. The DM process can be incredibly time consuming and costly, and for this reason, it is too often ignored.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued NIST 800-171, a standard that affects any company that works with controlled unclassified information (CUI) from certain government agencies.
The deadline for compliance with these standards has already passed (December 2017).
While NIST 800-171 adds additional layers of needed security to a company’s DM process, it also is costly and time-consuming to implement and operate.
GBS has embraced NIST 800-171 in its newly released, and NIST 800-171 compliant, cloud-based, secure Submarine Cable Document Management System (SCDMS) in order to maintain the critical documents associated with submarine cables.
SCMDS is monitored by an independent, professional Security Operations Center (SOC). This 24/7 service continuously monitors performance, applies security patch updates for servers, and provides rapid incident response and notification.
GBS recognizes the crucial responsibility that cable owners must maintain myriad records for their cable system to assure that they are operated, administered, maintained, and repaired using the most current and secure information.
