NATO Extends Cyber Security Support Services Contract with Leonardo
NATO

Leonardo has signed an 18-month contract with the NCI Agency which will see the Company continue to deliver cyber-incident detection and management capabilities.

The new NATO Computer Incident Response Capability (NCIRC) Cyber Security Support Services (CSSS) contract provides continuity of service to the NCIRC – Full Operational Capability (FOC) contract which ends in February 2019, the company said in a statement Wednesday,

Leonardo and the NCI Agency work in partnership to protect NATO’s Communications and Information System (CIS) infrastructure from cyber-attacks.  Protection extends from portable devices up to networks at 75 sites including NATO Headquarters. NCIRC-FOC has also been operationally employed to successfully protect the NATO summits in 2014, 2016 and 2018.

The NCIRC CSSS contract follows the successful operation of the NCIRC-FOC over a number of years and a deepening relationship between Leonardo and NCI Agency. In 2015, NCIRC-FOC expanded under the 10 Additional Sites contract to cover newly-opened European headquarters. This contract was completed to budget, specification and on schedule in 2017. In 2016, the two organisations signed an Industrial Partnership Agreement (IPA) to share cyber security information, with the mutual goal of better understanding threat patterns and attack trends.

In addition to delivering cyber security expertise to NATO, Leonardo also supports individual nation states, large corporations including defence companies and financial institutions. In September 2017, the Company announced that it had been selected by the European Space Agency (ESA) as the cyber security partner for the Galileo European navigation satellite programme. Leonardo is also active in the Gulf and South-East Asia, working with government and industry customers.
