The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is looking for vendors capable of providing cybersecurity services to secure its information technology infrastructure, information systems and data.
USCIS said it plans to employ cybersecurity experts across a range of areas, including network design, configuration and operation, FedScoop reported.
A draft statement of work posted on SAM .gov shows that the agency plans on awarding a firm-fixed-price contract to fulfill the requirements.
The proposed Cyber Security Defense Services III contract requires the following services: management/technical writing, security information and event management, endpoint security, infrastructure security, security integration and security testing.
Work includes deploying cybersecurity tools and conducting vulnerability scanning, network traffic analysis and network device scanning and identification to identify agency-wide vulnerabilities and/or anomalous activities.
The winning contractor will also be required to perform penetration tests and other exercises to evaluate the security posture of USCIS systems and determine the effectiveness of the agency’s security tools and processes.
Among other things, the selected contractor will have to propose security hardening and rule creation for network equipment, develop best practice security guidance for deploying applications in cloud environments, and support the maintenance and operation of products such as Splunk, Exabeam Threat Hunter, CrowdStrike Falcon and Forescout CounterACT.
