Intelligence Driven Defense®

An intelligent, defensive posture begins with the best inputs and ability to process them.

The Best Offense is a Good Defense

The Lockheed Martin Intelligence Driven Defense® philosophy supports the intent to stop offensive maneuvers during a cyberattack while maintaining a defensive posture. Every defensive stance and every offensive maneuver launched is driven by the human collection of information. Human interaction is the fuel for cyberthreats: Events caused by a human must be resolved by a human. We harness intelligence from the adversary during the threat life cycle and use it to minimize the impact of an attack. That information is shared across domains to protect against future attempts.

Video: What is Intelligence Driven Defense®?

Organizations across the globe are being targeted by cyber threats. Attacks are becoming more frequent, severe, and sophisticated, and no industry is immune. Cyber adversaries are continuously evolving their operations and techniques. Are you?


Intelligence-Driven Computer Network Defense Informed by Analysis of Adversary Campaigns and Intrusion Kill Chains

A new class of threats, appropriately dubbed the "Advanced Persistent Threat" (APT), represents well-resourced and trained adversaries that conduct multi-year intrusion campaigns targeting highly sensitive economic, proprietary, or national security information. These adversaries accomplish their goals using advanced tools and techniques designed to defeat most conventional computer network defense mechanisms.
