About Enhanced Cybersecurity Services
The Enhanced Cybersecurity Services (ECS) program was established in 2012 to enable sharing of sensitive and classified cyber threat information from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to protect critical infrastructure.
How it works:
DHS collects, consolidates and vets cyber threat intelligence from several agencies to produce the classified ECS threat feed.
To participate in the program an entity must:
- obtain the necessary personnel security clearances
- build an accredited facility for storing and processing classified information
- create an accredited IT system that stores and secures classified information
Leidos is the sole cybersecurity-focused provider to be ECS accredited.
- Leidos receives government furnished, classified threat indicators from DHS
- Leidos ECS services are included in the Enhanced Threat Protection (ETP) service
