ISHPI was born a cyber-services company supporting U.S. Armed Forces personnel and other direct defenders of the homeland with a heavy focus on emerging asymmetric Information Operations.  Our focus on cyber related services has held steady while our client base and functional capabilities expanded exponentially to envelop essentially all cyber impacted components of modern warfare.  Philosophically, our approach to cyber surety has evolved to become Holistic in nature, based on a firm conviction that cyber activities are never truly secure unless every layer of the OSI model and every human input associated with the activity is Holistically engineered and integrated for cyber security.
In 2014 ISHPI acquired Advanced Information Services Inc., a globally recognized leader in Software Development Quality and the winner of the 2013 Government Information Security Leadership Award for secure software lifecycle practices and the IEEE Computer Society Software Process Achievement Award.  The acquisition added CMMI Maturity Level 5 Cyber-Secure Software Development to ISHPI's Holistic CyberStance Strategy.
