Pentagon gets help with cyber crime fighting effort

The Defense Department has awarded Lockheed Martin a contract potentially worth up to $454 million to help it thwart a wide range of cyber criminals determined to target the department and its components, the company said May 3.

Under the contract, Lockheed Martin will furnish technical, functional and managerial support to the DOD Cyber Crime Center (DC3) as it works to block and nullify threats from terrorists, spies and identity thieves, the company said.

The company will assist DC3 with the development and use of digital forensics, multimedia lab services, research and development, and cyber analytics, the company said.
