General Dynamics Inks $86 Million Cyber Deal To Protect Spy Agency

General Dynamics says it plans to hire 80 new cybersecurity contractors to protect government networks at the Defense Intelligence Agency as part of a new $86 million contract.

The work in the Washington, D.C. area and U.S. military commands around the world will be done by GD's Information Technology business unit. The contract, which extends until 2016, will cover "security, authenticity, integrity and confidentiality of the DIA's information, as well as computer network defense," according to a GD statement.

Rep. Jim Langevin, D-R.I., co-chair of the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus, expressed concern last week over a "troubling reliance" on contractors for government cybersecurity work.
