“At ICF, we’re focused on providing holistic solutions designed to secure all systems, from IT to people and processes to physical infrastructure, where clients have access to a diverse set of capabilities designed to meet the full scale of diffuse and asymmetric cyber threats.”

Under the contract, ICF will provide cyber services to NIWC Pacific and any US Navy client agencies.

The range of services will include supporting technology assessments, research and development in cybersecurity, quick prototyping and integration, cybersecurity operations, vulnerability evaluations, and simulation and training.
