Senate Seeks Sources for Cybersecurity Insider-Threat Assessment

The Senate's Office of the Sergeant at Arms is seeking industry players that can provide insider-threat and privacy assessments for the Senate's networks.

In an April 6 solicitation, SAA said it needs help protecting Senate data such as personally identifiable information or health data. The vendor shall also help the SAA's cybersecurity department with auditing data protection efforts.

SAA added that the contractor shall assess and improve the Senate's ability to hunt down threats on its networks, Fifth Domain reported.

The vendor shall also perform a cybersecurity resiliency test focused on the ability to "identify, protect, detect, react and recover from the advanced cyber threat."

The solicitation comes as more Senate staff shift to telework arrangements during the coronavirus pandemic.
