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.
