KBR's government arm books $71M Defense Health cyber order

KBR’s government services arm has booked a three-year, $71 million task order for cybersecurity advisory and assistance services to the Defense Health Agency.

DHA seeks to ensure its overall IT environment supports overall efforts to provide secure healthcare to U.S. soldiers and their families, KBR said Thursday.

The company’s KBRwyle business will work with DHA to achieve IT compliance with information assurance directives and processes, prepare and review risk management framework packages, support test procedure standardization and help assess risks.

Additional work areas will include program management, security controls, privacy requirements and warranty management support. KBRwyle will also provide cybersecurity tools and help DHA maintain its web-based data management platform.

KBRwyle secured the order through the Navy’s Seaport-e professional services contract vehicle.
