Logicon Inc. will lead an industry team conducting worldwide network vulnerability
assessments of the Army Reserve Command under a contract announced Monday.
The contract, valued at up to $10 million, includes evaluating Reserve
vulnerabilities, including those relating to information security, information
assurance, and network and systems security.
It also includes evaluating physical and personnel security and vulnerabilities
in regard to chemical, biological and nuclear threats.
The assessments will review the Army Reserve Command's nearly 1,700
units to identify the assets that need to be protected and analyze their
risk to espionage, sabotage, terrorism, damage, misuse and theft.
"While risks cannot be eliminated, vulnerability assessments provide
a deliberate, analytical approach to establishing security requirements
and prioritizing program investments," said Anthony Cascio, Logicon program
