Raytheon Collaborates With DHS To Bolster Cyber Resiliency For Nation's Most Critical Infrastructure

WASHINGTON, March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) is collaborating with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to operate as a commercial service provider under the recently expanded Enhanced Cybersecurity Services (ECS) program outlined in President Obama's Executive Order on Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity. ECS is a voluntary information sharing program that assists critical infrastructure owners and operators as they improve the protection of their systems from unauthorized access, exploitation or data exfiltration.

Under a Memorandum of Agreement, Raytheon will receive active, malicious cybersecurity threat information furnished by DHS. As a commercial service provider, Raytheon will be able to use these indicators to protect the defense industrial base and other sectors of critical infrastructure. Raytheon, through its broader managed security service offerings, will be able to quickly analyze threats and defend against them, bolstering mission assurance.

"Information sharing and collaboration between government and industry partners is critical to defending our nation against the cyber threat," said Steven K. Hawkins, vice president of the Information Security Solutions product line for Raytheon's Intelligence and Information Systems business. "The Enhanced Cybersecurity Services program adds another layer of cyber resiliency for our nation's most critical resources."

For 30 years, Raytheon has delivered information assurance through innovative strategies and responsive solutions to government and industry customers. With a far-reaching set of critical cybersecurity skills and comprehensive, resilient end-to-end solutions, Raytheon provides a multi-layered approach to help anticipate and withstand cyber attacks without compromise to mission.
