Pentagon Contracting Out Portions of Cyber Command

“The emerging Pentagon division that coordinates military cybersecurity and cyberattacks is asking private contractors to help finish standing up the Cyber Command,” reports Aliya Sternstein .  

“Among the tasks to be assigned under a request for proposals issued Thursday are support for eavesdropping to detect threats and assistance with repelling hacks equivalent to an armed attack against the nation. The potentially five-year contract is capped at $475 million and covers nearly 20 task areas.”  

“The Cyber National Mission Force comprises three types of teams, focused on defending military networks, aiding troops worldwide with offensive maneuvers and deflecting hacks against U.S. organizations.”
