Lock­heed Martin opens cy­ber se­cu­rity in­tel­li­gence cen­tre in Aus­tralia


Lock­heed Martin has opened its fourth Se­cu­rity In­tel­li­gence Cen­tre (SIC) in Can­berra, con­tin­u­ing the com­pany’s in­ter­na­tional ex­ten­sion of its cy­ber de­fence net­work. The Cen­tre was opened by Son­dra Bar­bour, Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent of Lock­heed Martin’s In­for­ma­tion Sys­tems and Global So­lu­tions.

“This new Cen­tre is an in­vest­ment in tech­nol­ogy, ex­per­tise and tal­ent for in­creased in­no­va­tion through­out our Lock­heed Martin team,” ex­plained Bar­bour. “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.”

The SIC builds on over A$10 mil­lion of in­vest­ment in con­sol­i­dat­ing Lock­heed Martin busi­ness op­er­a­tions into a sin­gle fa­cil­ity —Lock­heed Martin Cen­ten­nial House—and the es­tab­lish­ment of a NexGen Cy­ber In­for­ma­tion and Tech­nol­ogy Cen­tre (NCITE) in Can­berra in 2012.

Ray­don Gates, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive of Lock­heed Martin Aus­tralia, ex­plains that “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. The es­tab­lish­ment of this new­est Cen­tre is just the next phase in our com­mit­ment to Aus­tralia’s cy­ber se­cu­rity tech­no­log­i­cal and eco­nomic evo­lu­tion.”
