Lockheed Martin opened the doors of its new cyber center near Fort Meade, Md. Wednesday and intends for the facility to connect industry partners, customers and employees in the company’s cybersecurity work.
This 56,000-square-foot center center of excellence contains training rooms and system laboratories and is built to host up to 250 professionals, the company said Thursday.
It also houses an innovation facility for Lockheed’s team to design cybersecurity offerings for customers.
“We’re looking ahead – we know the importance of the cyber mission will continue to grow for our customers,” said Tim Reardon, president of Lockheed’s information systems and global solutions business.
Reardon added the company is aiming to position its workforce, technology and facilities such as this one to meet future cyber challenges and help its customers.
