ECS Named Prime on Cybersecurity Contract to Protect FBI Networks

Company to provide advanced cybersecurity solutions including
monitoring, compliance, risk assessment and threat response

FAIRFAX, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/CyberCenterofExcellence?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#CyberCenterofExcellencelt;/agt;–The Federal
Bureau of Investigation
(FBI) has named ECS
the prime awardee of a $38 million contract to manage the Bureau’s
Cybersecurity Red and Blue Team (“REBL”) Program, and its Enterprise
Compliance and Continuous Monitoring Support Program. The
mission-oriented programs are designed to secure and monitor FBI
networks from internal and external threat actors.

Over a six-year period of performance, ECS will deploy remote and
on-premise cybersecurity solutions to continually enhance the FBI’s
security posture, identify risk to missions, respond to security
incidents, and actively hunt for vulnerabilities and threats. ECS will
apply threat- and risk-driven methodologies to actively defend systems
and networks across the Bureau: the ECS Red Team will leverage offensive
tools and techniques to emulate cyber threats, while the ECS Blue Team
will perform advanced operational vulnerability assessments and provide
incident response and threat-hunting services.

ECS will also manage the technical infrastructure of the Bureau’s
information security unit, conduct threat and vulnerability research,
and coordinate the unit’s cybersecurity operations. In the performance
of this contract, ECS will draw on an extensive history providing
advanced cybersecurity support to clients including the Department of
Energy, Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Army, and U.S. Navy. The
company will add value to the FBI by detecting and preventing
cyber-based threats, as well as responding to and recovering from
incidents within FBI systems and networks.

“At ECS, we’ve integrated our Cybersecurity Center of Excellence with a
dynamic law enforcement practice that supports and protects some of our
nation’s most critical agencies,” said George
Wilson
, president of ECS. “We are proud to provide the skills,
knowledge, and creativity needed to secure the systems and networks of
the FBI.”
