GAITHERSBURG, Md., June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) commemorated the tenth anniversary of the formal creation of its enterprise cyber defense organization, the Lockheed Martin Computer Incident Response Team (LM-CIRT), by discussing the growing cyber threats facing corporate and government networks and looking forward to delivering another decade of cyber security services.
At a celebration in one of the company's global network of Security Intelligence Centers, Executive Vice President of Information Systems & Global Solutions (IS&GS) Sondra Barbour, corporate Chief Information Officer Denise Saiki, and Chief Information Security Officer Jim Connelly commended the transformation of what started out as a four-person experimental network defense team into one of the most sophisticated and lauded cyber security organizations in the world.
"The inception of the LM-CIRT was a foundational element in Lockheed Martin's overall computer network defense," noted Connelly. "The team's innovative Intelligence Driven Defense® methodology and the Cyber Kill Chain® framework have transformed the way we approach defending against advanced threats, and have become recognized standards within the global cybersecurity community."
Among the trends identified by Lockheed Martin:

"No matter what motivates attackers, I am so proud to see the capabilities we developed internally to protect our own networks now being used to secure operations for the U.S. government, foreign customers and a growing number of major commercial clients."
