Hi Dave,

I would like to talk to you about our similar interest in the NWOC BAA. As well I would be interested in getting an update on your capabilities and likewise get you familiar with ours. I received a briefing more than an year back when I was leading the technical strategy for Northrop Grummans cyber campaign. I remember being impressed by your amount of IP related to cybersecurity.
