NATO Solicits Bids to Expand Cybersecurity Abilities
December 19, 2011
NATO is collecting bids from some of the world's top defense companies to help update and expand its cybersecurity abilities.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman are among the defense contractors lining up for a shot at the $42 million contract.
That might not sound like much, but NATO officials say the contract is significant because it cements the alliance's role in protecting cutting-edge infrastructure. They say it is a small amount of money, but it is technically ambitious.
