Cyber Kill Chain®

Lockheed Martin is a global security company.  The critical systems and networks of our customers come under attack every day.  And every day we continue to safeguard some of the most sensitive information and mission-critical systems in the world.

Lockheed Martin’s Computer Incident Response Team has created an intelligence-driven defense process, Cyber Kill Chain®, which allows information security professionals to proactively remediate and mitigate advanced threats in the future. 

Lockheed Martin intrusion analysts Eric Hutchins, Michael Cloppert and Dr. Rohan Amin wrote the seminal paper on Intelligence-Driven Computer Network Defense and it was first published at the 6th Annual International Conference on Information Warfare & Security in March 2011.
