Cyber Security

supplier-cyber-680

Cyber Security attacks continue to increase in frequency and sophistication for the Aerospace and Defense industry.  Adversaries are targeting anyone who possesses the sensitive information they seek including the government, prime contractors, and suppliers.  It is imperative that our suppliers understand what’s at stake and recognize our shared role in protecting sensitive information and intellectual property.   A single mistake or breach could have enormous consequences for our customers, our business, the Aerospace & Defense Industry, and national security. To manage this risk, Lockheed Martin has put together a three pronged strategy in conjunction with suppliers.  

Understanding Posture

 

Lockheed Martin must understand a supplier’s ability to protect sensitive information and manage cyber security risk. Suppliers vary in their capabilities to address cyber threats and protect sensitive information.   We have several initiatives underway to understand a supplier’s cyber security capabilities including a supplier cyber security questionnaire at Exostar.

Reducing Risk

 

One of the keys to delivering mission success for any program or customer is the ability to manage risks in whatever form. Lockheed Martin and its suppliers must work together to ensure that the appropriate risk mitigations are in place to protect sensitive information and deliver results.
