SAIC will serve as a commercial service provider for the Enhanced Cybersecurity Services program and develop security certifications intended to help critical infrastructure organizations use threat indicators for protection, the company said Wednesday.
“We must work together to protect our infrastructure, our economy, and our security from cyber attacks,” said John Thomas, SAIC’s acting president for the national security sector.
“SAIC is proud to be a part of this endeavor to share valuable threat information between government and critical infrastructure providers,” Thomas added.
DHS works with other government cybersecurity organizations from across the federal government to access sensitive and classified cyber threat information, then develops the indicators based on that information and shares them with participating companies.
“Each step we take to cultivate our cyber ecosystem with trusted information sharing relationships will have a direct return on stabilizing our national security and our economy,” said Julie Taylor, SAIC cybersecurity operation manager for national security services.
