The company said Thursday it will draw on its technical experience in penetration testing, security engineering, threat hunting, privacy and threat modeling, malware analysis/reverse engineering and DevSecOps to deliver on the contract.

“The SEC is essential to the strong functioning of the U.S. and world economy, so we are proud the agency is entrusting Booz Allen to deliver cyber defense operations to protect its data and other critical assets from increasingly aggressive and destructive cyber attacks,” said Mark Gamis, a senior vice president at Booz Allen.

Gamis added the company will leverage its experience and expertise in delivering cyber services to U.S. government and commercial customers and fielding cyber capabilities to safeguard high-value assets and mission-critical services.

Booz Allen holds three federal cybersecurity accreditations: the Cyber Incident Response Assistance and the Vulnerability Assessment Service accreditations from the National Security Agency and the General Services Administration’s Highly Adaptive Cybersecurity Services schedule.
