Northrop Grumman Unveils Cyber Security Operations Center

Northrop Grumman announced today that it has built a 6,300 square foot highly-advanced Cyber Security Operations Center (CSOC). The Center will detect security breeches and monitor Northrop Grumman and Northrop Grumman client’s network infrastructures.  According to Northrop’s press release, the new facility will monitor and analyze the over 1.5 billion cyber interactions that occur everyday. The Maryland-based facility’s cyber experts will work for over 105,000 clients and 10,000 servers around the globe.  

“The growing sophistication of cyber threats requires that we take assertive and holistic measures to defend our network and protect critical information assets. To respond, Northrop Grumman has integrated the latest cyber security technologies to meet this threat head-on. Along with more than a decade of expertise in information security for .mil and .gov customers, this new center creates a game-changing capability that will not only better protect our networks, but will keep pace with the ever-changing nature of the threat. Equally important, what we learn can be directly applied to our cyber customers,” said Tim McKnight, vice president and chief information security officer of Northrop Grumman’s information systems division.

The network monitoring center will be equipped with incident handlers (in the event of a security breech), forensic analysts, intelligence operators and cyber defense experts. The features used to protect Northrop Grumman’s internal systems will also be used under Northrop’s Tier One security solutions provider for government clients.
