Two Companies Picked To Protect US Dams from Cyberattacks

In efforts to bolster protection of US infrastructure, the Department of the Interior has awarded two companies positions on a $45 million dollar contract to protect the country’s 600 dams from cyberattack. Booz Allen Hamilton and Spry Methods won the positions on the contract that will work to prevent attacks like those carried out by suspected Iranian hackers in 2016 where the group was able to penetrate the systems and control water flow of a small dam in New York.
