Fighting Cyber Threats with a Fleet of Security Intelligence Centers

ISGS-Security_Int01_External

The reality is that in today’s world of technology cyber-attacks never stop coming. Every day there are cyber intrusions that put data, the mission, even lives at risk. All companies and nations must realize that along with the benefits of the digital age, comes a cyber war zone, and we are all under attack daily.  These attacks are tenacious and are becoming increasingly more sophisticated and complex to defend against.

Lockheed Martin, has a proactive and mission-focused approach that meets today’s cyber security challenges and anticipates tomorrow’s.  The company brings together the right team, the right processes, and the right technologies to provide our customers with reliable, mission resilient systems that are always available.

Demonstrating a commitment to this goal, Lockheed Martin has extended its cyber defense network by adding a fourth Security Intelligence Centre (SIC) to its fleet of Security Intelligence Centers around the world.  The newest SIC, in Australia, Canberra joins three other SIC’s located in Gaithersburg, Md., Denver, Co., and Farnborough, UK. 

This new SIC strengthens Lockheed Martin’s intelligence-driven computer network defense and ability to stay ahead of the rapidly evolving and persistent threats in cyber space.  It also increases the company’s vantage points to observe attacks against sovereign LM Australia networks, including reconnaissance, intrusion, compromise, command and control, and lateral movement. 

The primary role of each SIC is twofold — to reinforce the company’s detection, identification and response to information security incidents, and to develop and expand an elite, local cyber workforce.  This is accomplished by bringing together three primary capabilities: pervasive sensors, data management and analyst collaboration.

The Kingston SIC will be manned by a team of highly skilled and trained Australian cyber intelligence analysts drawn from Lockheed Martin Australia’s employee base. They will integrate their local operations into Lockheed Martin’s global computer network defense, while developing their own intrinsic strengths, and contribute to an active global exchange in cyber capability and tradecraft.

As the leading provider of cyber security solutions, Lockheed Martin uses an intelligence-driven defense method to comprehensively defend networks from advance threats by refining an approach that prioritizes vulnerabilities and integrates existing point solutions, enabling robust, seamless, end-to-end defense.  The company evaluates the threat landscape and helps stop attacks using the Cyber Kill Chain™ - the seven critical steps that a sophisticated adversary must take in order to achieve its objective.  

Lockheed Martin’s cyber capability is the direct result of collaboration with government partners over more than a decade, defending both our own and partner networks from advanced persistent threats. It has an unwavering sense of purpose to maintain the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the wealth of cyber intelligence included in this legacy.
