The Defense Department is expanding a pilot program to share cyber threat intelligence to help better protect its prime contractors.

This comes as the Pentagon continues to investigate a growing number of cases involving the mishandling or removal of classified data from military and commercial systems.

The trial program, involving 20 companies, will be extended through mid-November.
