Cyber Command Seeking Help From Small Business

Posted By Judy Bradt, Summit Insight, Monday, May 10, 2010

From Defense Daily, 10 May 2010:

Opportunities For Small Business

As the federal government and DoD develop strategies for meeting the cyber threat, they are trying to determine the best way to partner with the private sector for solutions.

During last week’s Navy League Sea Air and Space symposium, a cyber panel was asked about opportunities for smaller companies that have core capabilities in the cyber area. "They haven’t seen, in the past, very many SBIR topics in the cyber area,” the attendee asked. "[Do] you see that changing?” Vice Adm. Barry McCullough, commander Fleet Cyber Command/10th Fleet, says it is a slow process. At a previous Pacific Command Terminal Fury exercise, some companies were invited to attend, he adds. "This time I have a little bit more time to think about it. My staff had a little bit more time to think about it, so we have expanded the invitation list,” McCullough says.

"From the Navy perspective, I am looking for help from any segment of industry, SBIR, large [contractors]...I know the future U.S. Cyber Command is working that relationship as well as other agencies.” Because so much of the nation’s critical infrastructure is owned by the private sector, McCullough says it would be a mistake not to reach out to industry. "The technology is driven by
industry and we’d be exceptionally remiss if we did not look across the entire spectrum of industry to ask for assistance in this endeavor.”
