NATO solicits bids to expand cybersecurity abilities

The Wall Street Journal reports that Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman are among the defense contractors lining up for a shot at the $42 million contract.

And, because traditional military spending is getting slashed, not just in the U.S., but across the globe, defense contractors and technology companies from across the 28-country alliance are ready to compete for the contract.
The rest of the money will help it beef up its working capital.
