Defense Dept. seeks cyberattack detection system
The Defense Information Systems Agency last week announced plans to work with GRC International to develop a system to help detect, analyze and defend against cyberattacks across Defense Department networks. In a March 27 notice, DISA officials said the department needed a system to "monitor and analyze the immense amounts of computer traffic and detect the missions of hacker attacks and denial-of-service attacks launched against DISA's Global Information Grid daily." The grid includes unclassified and classified DOD networks worldwide.
Numerous individual defense organizations already have intrusion-detection systems on their networks, but DOD has only just begun integrating such protection across the department.
