Lockheed Martin has opened a cybersecurity center in Canberra, the fourth Security Intelligence Centre (SIC) that the company has built in Australia.

These SICs are intended not only to detect and respond to cyber threats, but also to develop a cyber-trained workforce in Australia.

“The Canberra SIC will be manned by a team of highly skilled and trained Australian cyber intelligence analysts drawn from Lockheed Martin Australia’s employee base,” said a Lockheed press release. “They will integrate their local operations into Lockheed Martin’s global computer network defense, while developing their own intrinsic strengths, and contribute to an active global exchange in cyber capability and tradecraft.

The new SIC builds on a more than 10 million 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 in Canberra last year.

“The establishment of this newest center is just the next phase in our commitment to Australia’s cyber security technological and economic evolution,” said Raydon Gates, chief executive of Lockheed Martin Australia.
