CGI has won a 6-year, $530 million task order contract to continually bolster cybersecurity and risk awareness of federal agencies participating in the Department of Homeland Security’s Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation Dynamic and Evolving Federal Enterprise Network Defense – Group.
The contract was awarded via the General Services Administration’s Alliant governmentwide acquisition contract through an acquisition conducted by GSA FEDSIM.
CGI will provide new cybersecurity capabilities and cost-effective solutions via standardized security stacks. In addition, it will improve visibility and insight into current cyber risks through a centralized view of security risk across the government infrastructure. Once completed, the federal government will have a significantly improved view of the overall risk posture posed by the Group C agencies’ digital resources.
“As a program, DHS’ CDM effort has to be one of the largest cross-agency efforts to secure the Federal Government’s IT infrastructure,” said CGI Senior Vice President Stephanie Mango. “CDM epitomizes the best of the shared services model, and we are delighted by the confidence that GSA, DHS and the Group C Agencies have entrusted to CGI to be part of this historic effort.”
The contract expands on the credential management work CGI has previously provided, to collect data on every user connecting to the network for 26 agencies.
