CSC has signed an agreement with the Department of Defense (DoD) to provide consulting services for cyber security and threats. They are the first IT enterprise company to join the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) program.
CSC will work with the DoD to prevent network system attacks from third parties and create a framework to characterize threats. They will also work with other DIB program members to develop risk management of critical network infrastructures.
According to David McCue, CSC’s CIO, “Cyber attacks are one of the biggest threats to our nation and global economic partners, and CSC is one of the leading IT companies that serves both public sector and private sector firms, ” and “As a major provider of IT outsourcing and infrastructure support for the DoD and many of the companies in the defense industrial base, CSC’s proactive approach to cyber security will aid our clients as they implement their own agreements with the DoD. Of equal importance, our approach will help clients worldwide safeguard critical infrastructures vital to their missions and the customers they serve in energy, healthcare, transport, finance and other sectors.”
