EADS has been offered a three-year contract by the UK Houses of Parliament with a specific request to protect MPs and Lords computers from being hacked by cyber terrorists . EADSs cyber division, Cassidian, has been offered this contract to improve security at a time when Britains technology infrastructure is under attack as never before. Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude commissioned a report that found the cost of cyber crime to the British economy could be as much as £27bn. There are more than 7,000 users on Parliaments network, including researchers and advisers in constituency offices. Cassidians UK boss, Michael Stevens, said, “Cassidian has a proven track record of providing network monitoring and security solutions for the UK Governments information infrastructure, including protecting networks with the most sensitive and secret data traffic. This contract enables the use of Cassidians recognised knowledge and experience to help to defend the Parliament ICT network.”
