The move, it said, is intended to close the cybersecurity gaps of its customers.
"Adding cybersecurity as a business sector was a strategic choice for MIL," said MIL President and Chief Executive Officer Maurice I. Long, Jr. "Our experience in offering information assurance and systems security services allows us to grow our capabilities and expand our reach to new defense clients through this new sector."
MIL said among its cybersecurity services are computer network defense support; information assurance; certification and audit support; disaster recovery; technical vulnerability and risk assessments.
Recent projects include supporting a Department of Defense customer in preparing for a Command Cyber Readiness Inspection, which ensures connections to the Global Information Grid are secure.
Cybersecurity expert Anthony Stephens is joining the MIL cybersecurity sector this month. Stephens brings with him more than 10 years of professional experience in military cyberdefense operations, MIL said.
