Defending Government Networks

ISGS-DC3-Feature-1-680

Cyber threats are amongst the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation.  The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is tackling cyber threats with a new program designed to enable unclassified civil agency networks to defend themselves with greater ease and efficiency than before. 

DHS’ Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program will make advanced cyber security tools and services available to strengthen the security of government networks. The tools will ensure that unclassified government networks will be constantly scanned for threats, defended from attacks and audited for performance.

As a leading provider of cyber security solutions, Lockheed Martin will join with DHS, other contract awardees and its civil agency partners to apply its intelligence driven approach to the CDM program. The company has invested in continuous monitoring technology and partnerships with members of the Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Alliance. Beginning in 2009, Lockheed Martin leveraged advances within its NexGen Cyber Innovation and Technology Center and the Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Alliance to implement a comprehensive continuous monitoring solution.

“Vulnerabilities to information networks can threaten confidentiality, integrity and availability of critical information supporting the operations of the civil government,” said Ron Ecker, CDM capture manager. “Currently different agencies have different levels of resources dedicated to cyber security, so this program will allow services such as continuous monitoring to be more easily procured across agencies.”
