BreakPoint Labs Awarded SBIR Direct to Phase II Contract
Posted on November 4th, 2019
Falls Church, VA – BreakPoint Labs, a National Capital Region-based cybersecurity services firm, is pleased to announce the award of a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract for the Department of Defense (DoD) in the field of cybersecurity analysis for critical infrastructure resilience.
The DoD’s Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), in conjunction with the U.S. Army, awarded BreakPoint Labs the SBIR Direct to Phase II contract in response to its need for designing and developing cyber analytics able to comprehend unstructured and/or unlabeled data to derive operationally-relevant conclusions and provide actionable information about critical infrastructures’ cybersecurity status to operators.
The DoD’s stated need is for cyber analytics that aid in securing, protecting, and defending critical infrastructures to include task-critical assets, industrial control systems, and manufacturing operational technology. These cyber analytics will assist cyber operators in focusing efforts on relevant data sets, visualizing data, and detecting malicious activity; providing a mechanism for penetration testing, modeling, and simulation, with minimal mission impact. BreakPoint Labs has a proven track record of providing advanced defensive cyber operations and analytic development, which directly align with the stated mission requirements of the DoD and U.S. Army.
“The drive to exploit current and emerging Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, data science and cloud capabilities to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of critical infrastructure delivers tremendous benefits to all areas of the nation, including our defense missions,” said Phil Lacombe, a Cyber Strategist at BreakPoint Labs and Lead Investigator for the SBIR. “Securing those infrastructures from cyber attack is an absolute priority, and this project directly supports that priority.”
