DHS Wants Cyber Security Sources

Ben Bain writes on

The Homeland Security Department wants to know which contractors can help DHS on a range of cybersecurity functions.

DHS said Feb. 5 that in anticipation of a future requirement, it was looking for contractors that were capable of providing support to its National Cyber Security Division (NCSD). The NCSD runs the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team, which oversees the program that protects the government’s civilian computer networks.

DHS wants looking to learn about industry's abilities to provide:

  • Detailed analysis and characterization of malicious code to help identify cyber threats.
  • Technical coordination between various DHS offices.
  • Security architecture and analysis support.
  • Systems engineering.
  • Overall management of cyber protection technical programs.

Responses to the sources sought notice are due Feb. 12. DHS said the notice was for informational and market research purposes and did not guarantee a solicitation would be forthcoming.
