Subsystems Chief Cyber Strategist John Zimmerman talks about lowering risk and raising resiliency in an Asymmetrical Cyber Security strategy at the 2018 National Cyber Summit at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL.
Subsystems was honored to accept Company of the Year from the Asian American Chamber of Commerce at the 2018 Jewels of Asia Gala May 10, 2018.
“It is an honor to be recognized by the Chamber and our peers for the hard work of our employees. We are dedicated to to serving our country and moving our Nation’s agenda forward,” said the company’s founder and CEO Sam Malhotra. Subsystem’s Chief Financial Officer Shane Thrailkill and Senior Human Resources Director Cathy Spewak were pleased to receive the award on the company’s behalf.
Subsystems is a mid-tier engineering company which specializes in developing complex solutions to solve some of the U.S. Navy, U.S. Army, and FAA’s most difficult problems. Subsystems and its subsidiary KMS have over 300 employees in over 20 locations throughout the United States.
Under way in the eastern Atlantic, the USS Texas (SSN-775), a Virginia-class attack submarine, receives new tasking to go east where no navigation plan exists.
The machine-readable tasking message is ingested into the ship’s computer system, and the associated waterspace assignment is displayed on a high-definition, horizontal touch screen. The navigator walks into the control room and activates the mission-planning aid.
If there was a cyber attack, however, it’s quite possible that there’s no evidence aboard the McCain to find. It would have been much easier for an adversary to hack the merchant ship involved in the accident, the Alnic MC, causing it to turn unexpectedly across the destroyer’s path. That’s the hypothesis — admittedly speculation — of a Navy IT expert we’ve featured previously in these pages, recently retired Capt. John Zimmerman. He commanded the submarine USS Jefferson City, served as deputy chief information officer at Navy Sea Systems Command, and now is vice-president at contractor SubSystems.
