Netizen Corp. has landed a five-year, $9.9 million contract to provide cybersecurity, compliance and risk assessment services for the U.S. Army‘s technology systems on classified and unclassified networks.
Allentown, Pennsylvania-based Netizen said Monday it will support the Army’s efforts under the National Institute of Standards and Technology‘s Risk Management Framework Security Control Assessor-Validator.

Harris added the contract will create approximately 15 new jobs and work will occur at military locations across the U.S. and potentially worldwide.
