McConnell's Company Gets $34 Million in Cyber Security Contracts
Booz Allen Hamilton was recently awarded two separate Department of Defense contracts.
Last month, former Director of National Intelligence Michael McConnell warned that the U.S. is already fighting and losing a cyberwar -- and this week, his company, Booz Allen Hamilton, won $34 million in government contracts.
"For a measly $14.4 million in taxpayer money, the outfit will help build a new cyberwar bunker for the U.S. Cyber Command," writes Threat Level's Ryan Singel. "Additionally, Booz Allen Hamilton won another contract for $20 million to 'foster collaboration among telecommunications researchers, University of Maryland faculty members and other academic institutions to improve secure networking and telecommunications and boost information assurance,' Washington Technology reports."
"While that might sound like a lot of money to set up a mailing list and a wiki, please dont be cynical," Singel writes.
