Montreal-based CGI Group says its U.S. subsidiary, based in Fairfax, Va., will create a centralized view of security risks at a group of agencies of the U.S. government.

The contract is part of Homeland Security’s continuous diagnostics and mitigation program, which provides tools to identify cybersecurity risks on an ongoing basis and to identify which high-risk risks should be addressed first.
