UK MoD extends BT cyber-security agreement
By Eleanor Keymer
The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) is extending its cyber security agreement with British Telecom (BT) in a seven-year contract that will see the company deliver and integrate a range of new cyber capabilities for the MoD.
The contract, which is worth an undisclosed amount, will build on an existing service and will focus on deterring, reacting to and recovering from cyber threats targeting the MoD.
"The range of new capabilities and additional functionality that BT is providing will increase the situational awareness, scope and depth of the work that we are doing across a broad set of networks and services that the MoD currently operates," Matt Graff, BT's client director, cyber, told IHS Jane's .
"We do a lot of work to enable the MoD to understand how to prepare [for cyber threats] in advance as that's a much more efficient and economical approach to defending against these threats," he added.149 of 420 words
