Ron Foudray, vice president of business development at Northrop Grumman‘s technology services sector, has said he believes that cyber resilience strategies are essential for both kinetic and non-kinetic warfare missions, C4ISR & Networks reported Friday.

Amber Corrin writes Northrop has invested in technical efforts to help military customers address security challenges in cyber, missile, unmanned systems.

“We have a mantra of start, stay and return secure,” Foudray told an audience Friday at the West Conference in San Diego.

“It’s the concept of designing [security] up front in a system, platform, sensor, component or anything within an operating warfighting piece of machinery.”
