Lockheed Martin Establishes Continuous Monitoring Lab And Workshops To Support Department Of Homeland Security

GAITHERSBURG, Md., Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) is inviting government organizations interested in learning how to strengthen their network security to its new continuous diagnostics and mitigation (CDM) lab and associated workshops.

Established to support the Department of Homeland Security's CDM program that is designed to defend government networks from threats, the lab demonstrates commercial cyber security products and Lockheed Martin integration services. The lab, located in Lockheed Martin's NexGen Cyber Innovation & Technology Center, was created to allow customers to experience CDM offerings and envision how products and services can be implemented to mature their network resiliency. 

"Lockheed Martin's CDM lab makes tangible the many benefits of Lockheed Martin's cyber defense tools and will increase the speed and efficiency of government cyber security implementation," said Greg Boison, director of homeland and cyber security for Lockheed Martin's Information Systems & Global Solutions business. "By using the Lockheed Martin Cyber Kill Chain ® with an intelligence driven defense approach, our methodology provides unique benefits and assurance to customers proven in defense of our own enterprise systems."

Lockheed Martin CDM workshops are scheduled for Nov. 14 and 20 and are available to government attendees ranging from chief information security officers to security operations center managers and cyber analysts. During the three-hour workshop sessions, customers will learn how to integrate continuous asset cyber situational awareness, improve decision support, increase speed in remediation of policy issues and vulnerabilities, and realize affordability. Workshops are limited to government attendees. To register, click here.

Under CDM, advanced cyber security tools and services will ensure that unclassified government networks will be constantly scanned for threats, defended from attacks and audited for performance. Federal, state and local agencies as well as tribal and territorial governments can implement CDM. Lockheed Martin was one of 17 contractors awarded a role on the program, which has a potential ceiling value of $6 billion and can be procured under the General Service Administration Federal Systems Integration and Management Center IT Schedule 70. The blanket purchase agreement with Lockheed Martin has a one-year base period with four, one-year options.

As a leading provider of cyber security solutions, Lockheed Martin takes an intelligence driven defense approach to protecting our nation's most critical assets. The company has invested in continuous monitoring technology and partnerships with members of the Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Alliance. Beginning in 2009, Lockheed Martin leveraged advances within its NexGen Cyber Innovation and Technology Center and the Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Alliance to implement a comprehensive continuous monitoring solution.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 116,000 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.
