Military operations threatened by cyberassault will be aided by Lockheed Martin’s new information security tools: the “Mission Maker” initiatives.
Lockheed Martin’s “Mission Maker” initiatives embed cybersecurity into command and control, add cyber threat monitoring to situational awareness capabilities, and enhance information operations. These capabilities are designed to ensure essential communications and data exchanges continue securely, even when networks are under cyberassault. Additionally, cybersecurity has been added as a key portion of strategic and operational planning for irregular and joint operations.
John Mengucci, President of Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Services-Defense, commented “In addition to information technology solutions and mission applications, we provide our defense customers with the robust cyber security solutions necessary for success in their unique environment. Our Mission Maker solutions build in the intelligence to effectively fight through cyber attacks. It’s a combination of the right people and training, robust processes, key technologies, mission knowledge and secure system implementations.”
