Lockheed Martin wins FBI contract

Federal Bureau of Investigations

Lockheed Martin received a $140 million contract from the FBI today to support the development of new security for the bureau's computers and networks.

As part of the five-year agreement, Lockheed Martin will support the new Technology Infusion Program, designed to ensure programs and systems are properly secured against threats. The program is part of the FBI's effort to mitigate risk and reduce vulnerabilities of critical assets, according to Lockheed officials.

"Today the cyberthreats against our government systems are real. We stand prepared to help the FBI in its efforts to protect these most sensitive assets," said Linda Gooden, president of Lockheed Martin Information Technology.

Lockheed Martin's IT unit, which also manages the network infrastructure at the Pentagon and develops software applications to aid the Social Security Administration payment process, will help introduce advanced technology safeguards to protect the FBI's systems.

The company also operates the FBI's System of Systems in West Virginia and is working to update the network at that facility, which is home to the bureau's Criminal Justice Information Services Division.
