CGI Federal has won a new agreement to prepare the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for emerging cyber threats under its Global Infrastructure and Development Acquisition blanket purchase agreement.
This work enables CGI Federal to implement new processes and technologies to help NRC evolve its security posture, protecting it from current and future threats. The agreement has a total value of $17.4 million over a 16-month base period and three 12-month option periods.
“The NRC has made significant investments to evolve its cybersecurity processes and tools,” said Stefan Becker, senior vice president and regulatory agencies programs business unit lead at CGI Federal.
“We are pleased to have been part of their journey, which brings CGI’s decades of experience in securing organizations through innovative and advanced cybersecurity services to enhance cyber threat intelligence throughout the NRC,” Becker added. “Through this work, CGI will bring a modernized IT environment that advances security monitoring and analysis and mitigates risks across the enterprise.”
CGI Federal will also employ a digital forensics lab to maintain NRC operations, confidentiality and integrity, enabling NRC to quickly address insider and advanced persistent threats.
“CGI’s strong history with the NRC Security Operations Center (SOC) program dates back to 2017, when CGI began its support of the SOC Analytics and Incident Response capabilities,” said Vishal Ranjan, vice president and NRC account executive for CGI Federal.
“Our highly qualified and certified cybersecurity professionals bring decades of experience and innovation that will continuously improve NRC’s security posture, with a strong focus on process evolution utilizing the latest cybersecurity analytics and tools,” Ranjan added.
