The Marine Corps is assessing industry capabilities to detect anomalies in cyberspace. The request for information (RFI), from Marine Forces Cyber Command (MARFORCYBER), is to assess capabilities to “detect, leverage and exploit anomalies and irregularities in cyberspace that form unorthodox structures and constructs on networks, software, hardware, and information technology processes.”
The RFI will be used to shape a MARFORCYBER contract to analyze the cyberspace in specific countries of interest (COI).
“Studies will also include personalities of interest, leadership, and country-to-country interplay and regional analysis,” according to the RFI. The contractor will conduct an analysis of the elite dynamics of cyberspace COIs. Initially, the analysis should focus on interactions between military, political, technology, and financial aspects and developments within the COIs.”
