BAE Systems signed a contract with the FBI to provide critical information security safeguards, including certification and accreditation.
According to BAE Systems, the firm will serve “as the prime contractor offering information security risk assessments, a form of quality control. The information assurance process is cyclical and is continuously monitored and improved as risks change so that data, some of it classified, is transmitted, stored and protected safely.”
The deal is worth $40 million.
“We’re serving as the gatekeepers for the FBI in the cyber world, ” said Tom Sechler, a vice president and general manager of the company’s Intelligence & Security Sector. “With the level of management, expert staffing and quality control that we’re providing the customer, everyone at the FBI can click ‘send’ with peace of mind.”
