Lockheed Martin Hosts Cyber Defense Exercise Supporting NSA For 11th Year

HANOVER, Md., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) will host emerging cyber leaders from U.S. and Canadian military service academies to test their capabilities this week against experts from the National Security Agency in the annual Cyber Defense Exercise (CDX).

"Cyber Security is at the core of all we do, so each year we are inspired by these innovative students as they face challenges from veteran NSA experts," said Darrell Durst, vice president of cyber solutions for Lockheed Martin's Information Systems & Global Solutions. "The students tackle the same types of threats our nation faces daily in cyber security. Whether detecting intruders, or adapting to sophisticated threats, NSA leverages this opportunity to educate the next generation of cyber professionals."

Lockheed Martin coordinated with NSA to establish a private network for the exercise, which links all the academies with CDX headquarters at the Lockheed Martin facility in Hanover. The company is also providing technical support for CDX preparation and execution. Lockheed Martin is a leading provider of cyber security technology and services to the NSA and a number of defense and intelligence agencies.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 120,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration, and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products, and services.  The Corporation's net sales for 2012 were $47.2 billion.
