General Dynamics Information Technology - ExecutiveMosaicGeneral Dynamics Informatino Technology is one of 17 companies that have won positions on a potential $6 billion Department of Homeland Security contract covering cybersecurity services to federal, state and local agencies.

The business unit will work to analyze activities of .gov networks and help manage purchases of services and tools under DHS’ Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program, General Dynamics said Friday.

DHS intends to identify security issues, counter cyber attacks and help technical managers reduce risks under the five-year program.

Agencies can use the continuous-monitoring-as-a-service model to procure the security services and General Dynamics will provide integration and customization support to participating agencies.
