NGC Presents Cybersecurity Awareness Month Activities

Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) will debut a number of initiatives throughout October to mark Cybersecurity Awareness Month.

Many of the company’s programs will focus on preparing the next generation of cyber experts and warriors, including a workshop for high school students, a teen cyber defense competition and a new Cyber Academy training and research facility.

“Securing our critical infrastructure demands a dedicated workforce and cutting-edge technologies,” said Linda A. Mills, corporate vice president and president of Northrop Grumman Information Systems and the leader of the company’s cybersecurity efforts.  “Underpinning success in these efforts is strong public-private partnerships; we’re too interconnected not to work together.”

Mills added that Northrop Grumman’s commitment to cyber issues stretches back 30 years, “before ‘cyber’ was fashionable,” she added.
