What We Do

Secure Site Development Experience

Being located in Washington, D.C. Taoti has extensive experience working with municipal, state, national and international clients. Each has a range of security requirements that include the handling of customer and patient data as well as strict rules surrounding the retention and destruction of data.

NIST-Compliant Federal Experience

Some of our clients, including a large federal client, do not permit the written disclosure of the work we do for them. However, these requirements do include adherence to NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-53, Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, external SOC-2 security reviews.

HIPAA-Compliant Work

Some of our clients, including a large federal client, do not permit the written disclosure of the work we do for them. However, these requirements do include adherence to NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-53, Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, external SOC-2 security reviews.

Protecting Against DDOS Attacks

Freedom House is an independent watchdog organization dedicated to the expansion of freedom and democracy around the world. As such, their website is often a target of foreign regimes that do not want to be subject to its scrutiny. In our work on various aspects of the FreedomHouse.org website, Taoti complies with numerous additional security layers, including two-factor authentication and protocols designed to protect the site against DDOS attacks.

Secure Government Intranets

The USAID Office of Inspector General approached Taoti needing to replace an outdated and nearly unused intranet. Taoti worked with OIG to develop a custom architecture and design that met the office’s unique requirements and complied with USAID’s branding standards. The intranet allows the Office of Inspector General to tightly control who could access which documents and the ability to create working groups to share information.

We developed a highly secure and flexible intranet that allows staff to control access while facilitating sharing and collaborating. Recently, we also incorporated a separate whistleblowers microsite and blog into the intranet. We continue to work with USAID on enhancements to the Intranet and is currently adding the ability for users to subscribe to email updates on specific topics.

Section 508 and WCAG 2.0 Accessibility

Taoti has experience working with a range of clients and ensuring that their sites achieve a variety of accessibility levels. These clients include the Student Privacy site which we recently designed and developed for the Department of Education (studentprivacy.ed.gov)

At the core of our accessibility efforts is our understanding that accessibility is not an just item on a checklist that only needs to be done once. It is equal parts design, development and ongoing governance.

From our initial conversations with a potential client, we take the time to discuss their understanding of their accessibility requirements and work to ensure that the appropriate level of design, development and training effort is factored into the project and is done in a way that works with the client’s overall budget and timeline constraints.
