In its most recent Executive Spotlight interview, ExecutiveBiz spoke with Caesar Nieves, senior vice president of cyber and intelligence at Jacobs, about the recent BlackLynx acquisition and its impact on the company’s national security efforts. The SVP also tackled the company’s contract with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, its expansion of intelligence community footprint as well as the new cyber hygiene standards.
Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Nieves discussing Jacob’s purchase of BlackLynx:
“Once we took a look at BlackLynx, the company really fit a number of those areas from a strategic point of view and we’re acquiring them with a number of products and technologies that have been successfully deployed in those high barriers to entry areas already.
In addition to supporting our government services work, we also see opportunities to leverage BlackLynx’s technologies and software-enabled services across critical infrastructure, including water/wastewater management, advanced facilities, and smart cities. This also allows us to expand into those environments with new threat intelligence capabilities.”
