MoD extends cyber security contract with BT
Thursday, July 05, 2012
BT has had a contract to provide cyber security and defence for global IT systems to the Ministry of Defence extended for another 7 years.
The contract builds upon an existing contract to enhance and secure MoD IT systems. The MoD has faced increasing attacks upon computer services with an increase of more than double from 2009 to 2010.
The details of the contract were not disclosed by BT who cited security reasons, but Neil Rogers, president of global government at BT Global Services, commented that: “The service has already delivered a range of benefits, not just in terms of security, but also financial and operational efficiencies”.
