DHS-CSD announcement

January 21, 2016

The Cyber Security Division (CSD) of the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has informed us about a couple of solicitations, and asked us to forward this to our Dutch national research community:

1.    Two New BAA Solicitations - Static Tool Analysis Modernization Project (STAMP) and Application Security Threat Attack Modeling (ASTAM). Both can be found at https://baa2.st.dhs.gov/portal/BAA/ under the Current Solicitations tab over the Solicitations header.

2.    CSD has established a DHS Silicon Valley Office (SVO). This includes a first Other Transaction Solicitation (OTS) for technologies to provide security for the Internet of Things (IoT). The overarching solicitation can be found at https://www.fbo.gov/spg/DHS/OCPO/DHS-OCPO/HSHQDC16RB0005/listing.html and the first topic call can be found at https://www.fbo.gov/spg/DHS/OCPO/DHS-OCPO/HSHQDC-16-R-00035/listing.html. These solicitations are focused on startups that have never done government business before. Also interested Dutch companies are welcome to respond to the call. In case of questions, please mail to DHS-Silicon-Valley@hq.dhs.gov.
