Obama administration set to create cybersecurity contract bonanza
Technology companies have an opportunity to win US government contracts by working with the Obama administration on cybersecurity projects, according to analyst Forrester.
In a report, Forrester outlined the Obama administration's plan and discussed how technology companies can win contracts for upgrading the nation's cybersecurity infrastructure.
Forrester said the Obama administration plans to declare cyber infrastructure a strategic asset and that it will create a national cybersecurity advisor.
A big opportunity for firms is in technology planning, said the analyst, where companies can provide support for overall strategy, information sharing and early-warning systems.
