DHS seeks next-gen security analysis

To address the rising complexity of the threat environment, the Department of Homeland Security is looking for analytic approaches and data visualizations that can help stakeholders better understand of security risks.

DHS’s Office of Cyber and Infrastructure Analysis works with public- and private-sector partners to provide analysis on a range of issues, including the effects of natural or human-caused events on critical infrastructure, the nexus between cyber and physical infrastructure and the impacts of cyber events on federal networks.

OCIA is looking for research, development and analysis tools and services beyond what is offered by commercial packages. Specifically, the office is requesting information on:

Analytic methods, including data/text mining, machine learning, pattern matching, forecasting, visualization, sentiment analysis, network and cluster analysis, simulations, complex event processing and neural networks.

Advanced hardware and software to analyze cyber and infrastructure risk at an advanced level.

Interactive data visualizations, graphics and multimedia products that can display information in several dimensions, showing temporal changes, hierarchies and geospatial information on dashboards or networks.

Read the request for information here.
