Lockheed Opens Australia Cyber Defense Center; Raydon Gates, Sondra Barbour Comment - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Lockheed Martin BlueLockheed Martin has opened a new information technology hub for cyber defense efforts in Australia as part of a strategy to extend the company’s IT and cyber footprint in the country.

The Security Intelligence Centre is located at the Lockheed Martin Centennial House in the national capital of Canberra, which is also home to the NexGen Cyber Innovation and Technology Centre, Lockheed said Thursday.

The company aims to help clients detect, identify and respond to information security events and help local companies develop their own cyber workforces.

“Lockheed Martin intends to lead the way in finding cyber-tech solutions that make our country safer, and to create cyber-professional jobs that meet Australia’s national security challenges today and tomorrow,“ said Raydon Gates, chief executive of Lockheed Martin Australia.

“The establishment of this newest centre is just the next phase in our commitment to Australia’s cyber security technological and economic evolution,” he added.

Cyber intelligence analysts at the center will interface with Lockheed's global defense network while developing their own cyber capabilities, the company said.

“As cyber threats become increasingly sophisticated and persistent, our cyber intelligence analysts continuously adapt and improve their methods in collaboration with government and industry partners, implementing new mitigations to keep ahead of the threats,” said Sondra Barbour, executive vice president of information systems and global solutions at Lockheed.
