Leidos has been awarded a task order by the US Department of Commerce (DOC) National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to manage cyber and enterprise security operations for the organization.

In a statement, Leidos said it will build on NOAA’s existing cyber methodologies and the company’s knowledge of transforming security operations centres to ensure the NOAA Cyber Security Center (NCSC) can protect against sophisticated attacks across an asset base supporting over 20,000 users.

Similarly, Leidos will help the DOC Enterprise Security Operations Center (ESOC) provide cybersecurity status information to enable timely decision-making across all Commerce bureaus.

The single award, firm-fixed-price, time and materials task order has a one-year base performance period and four one-year option years with a total value of approximately US$100 million if all options are exercised. 

“Leidos creates a culture of cyber excellence by implementing critical analysis and a strong network defence that ensures mission resiliency for our customers,” Angie Heise, Leidos Civil Group President, said.

NOAA provides environmental data and information that focuses on conditions of oceans, major waterways, and the atmosphere.
