TeleCommunication Systems (TSYS) said Wednesday it has been awarded a five-year contract extension (a base plus five option periods) valued at approximately $68 million to provide the Department of Defense with curriculum development and training delivery services to support cybersecurity workforce development.
The wireless communications company’s own cybersecurity portfolio will be used to complement and enhance the training delivery. TCS also will leverage its tool to deliver performance-based testing.
The TCS curriculum has been used for advanced cybersecurity training of more than 12,000 government and enterprise professionals since 2009.
TSYS shares closed at $3.36 on Tuesday and were unchanged in pre-market trading.
