Science Applications International Corp. will aim to help the Department of Homeland Security bolster the cybersecurity posture of federal civilian “.gov” networks and protect cyber infrastructure under a potential five-year, $6 billion contract.
Julie Taylor, SAIC senior vice president and national security operations manager, said the company will work to help DHS use risk-based analytics to prioritize threats.
Federal agencies and state, local, tribal and territorial governments can acquire tools and services under the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation, Tools and Continuous Monitoring as a Service contract.
DHS intends to help participating agencies automate their existing continuous network monitoring systems, correlate and analyze security-related information and use risk-based decision making at the agency and federal enterprise level.
