FAIRFAX, Va., Dec. 24 (UPI) -- The U.S. Homeland Security Department has contracted SRA International Inc. to support an initiative to improve security for information systems.

U.S. company and strategic consulting services provider SRA was awarded the mission support services contract from the Homeland Security Department's National Cyber Security Division.

Under the $50 million deal, SRA will support the National Cyber Security Division's mission to counter the evolving threat of cyberattacks through the improvement of information systems security.

"The nation, including both public and private sectors, is undergoing an ever-increasing onslaught of cyberattacks with the most sophisticated attacks focused on compromising our country's high-value intellectual property and undermining our national security," SRA Senior Vice President National Security Sector Gordy McElroy said in a statement.

"The SRA team will assist National Cyber Security Division in meeting their nationally critical mission of working collaboratively with public, private and international entities to secure cyberspace and America's cyber assets."
