The NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency released on 20 January a new Request for Quotation (RFQ) for an estimated value of 17 Million EUR to further strengthen its cyber security services.
This project, managed under the umbrella of the Capability Package (CP) 120 Programme, aims to ensure continuity of service and support of the current Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) components, while enabling a transition to a full-fledged enterprise logging solution.
Staff of the NATO Cyber Security Centre in Mons, Belgium, need the SIEM to correlate information and detect security events.
"This project will modernize a key element of our monitoring and detection infrastructure, and ensure that NATO stays on top of security incident detection and response. It will also contribute to the consolidation of log management onto a single enterprise-wide system, thus increasing effectiveness and reducing costs," said Frederic Jordan, Head of the Cyber Security Programme Delivery Branch of the NCI Agency.
