The american DHHS- Department of Health and Human Services have gone on a huge spending budget for cyber security over the next five years with them awarding Melin international the $40 Million 5year contract . Merlin has picked up the contract with actually comes from the security sector that is already within the DHHS that looks after all its communications and networking security features and is known as the Computer Security Incident Response Center (CSIRC) which starts to ask the question why do they need to out source? Merlin International provides cyber security services and solutions to federal government and was started in 1997 and is privatly owned and has around about 100 employees. Merlin holds contracts with many of the U.S Government sectors such as the U.S Army, U.S. Department of Defense,U.S. Department of Labor, U.S. Navy And many more. So this really does start to raise questions as to why it costs so much to provide cyber security services and solutions and why is the US Government out source for so many different areas of the government and why do they not invest that money to train and start a propoer cyber security sector that actually does more then give away money and make press release statements. In the statement they say that this will help the cyber security problem of fighting data protection in real ti Original press statement
