The General Services Administration wants to keep pace with the evolving cybersecurity services market.
WHAT: The General Services Administration's Federal Acquisition Service is looking for information on the cybersecurity services market.
WHY: Commercial services are evolving beyond detection to become more proactive and preventive. GSA wants more information on what is available from commercial providers and a better sense of what agencies need.
The announcement states that FAS "is conducting business channel research to gain an enhanced understanding of what agencies' needs are, what solutions currently exist and what role GSA can play in improving the ability of agencies to procure the suite of cybersecurity services."
The information gathered will help identify offerings, improve their visibility and fill gaps. Some areas of interest include penetration testing, phishing assessments, network mapping, vulnerability scanning and incident response.
The RFI also has a long list of questions about commercial services and how GSA's offerings compare.
Comments are due by April 20.
