BAE Systems announced that it has received a $40 Million order to provide cybersecurity services to the FBI, the first order awarded under the Information Assurance Program Support contract vehicle, a five-year effort valued at $134 million.

BAE Cyber Security Contracts

BAE will provide critical information security safeguards, including certification and accreditation, to protect FBI computer networks in the United States and around the world.

BAE will serve as the prime contractor offering information security risk assessments, ensuring systems are continuously monitored and improved as risks change so that data, some of it classified, is transmitted, stored and protected safely. Continuous monitoring is a technique to address the security impacts on an information system resulting from changes to the hardware or software during the lifecycle.

“We’re serving as the gatekeepers for the FBI in the cyber world,” said Tom Sechler, a vice president and general manager of the company’s Intelligence & Security sector.

BAE Systems is a global defense, security and aerospace company with approximately 107,000 employees worldwide and annual (2009) sales of $36.2 billion. BAE Systems’ Intelligence & Security Sector, based in Arlington, VA, focuses on four core customer missions – intelligence and counterintelligence, homeland security, law enforcement, and support to military operations.
