CTEC won a Pool 1 Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to provide mis-dis-mal (MDM) information activities to the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). CTEC lead the national effort to protect and enhance the resilience of physical and cyber infrastructure across five critical divisions:

  • Cybersecurity Division
  • Emergency Communications Division
  • Infrastructure Security Division
  • Stakeholder Engagement Division
  • National Risk Management Center

CTEC leveraged its AI-powered predictive analytics platform to analyze historical target reactions to cyber attacks in order to inform and build models capable of identifying emerging social media Misinformation, Disinformation and Malinformation (MDM) activities. This work allowed CISA to develop risk mitigation materials tailored to the most at-risk targets based on CTEC’s strategic content optimized by analytics.

CTEC’s security engineers leveraged its AgileDNA+® framework to develop operational, technical, and performance measures for a wide variety of agency initiatives, including measuring the efficacy of CISA risk mitigation initiatives compared to its predictive model.

DHS required CTEC to automate MDM narrative identification, analysis, and “Potential for Impact” (PFI) assessment using proven and scalable predictive modeling techniques.  CTEC helped identify and provide solutions to target audiences and provided materials necessary to mitigate the risk of various breaches. DHS awarded CTEC a one-year base period and four option years due to a history of stellar past performance within the DHS.
