Lockheed Martin has opened a new Security Information Center in Canberra, Australia. The center, in the Kingston district of the city, will be manned by Australian cyber intelligence analysts, who will integrate their activities into activity with Lockheed Martin's global computer defense network, according to a Lockheed Martin announcement.
"This center represents an investment in technology, skill and talent for increasing innovation among Lockheed Martin's team members," said Sondra Barbour, executive vice-president of the company's information systems and global solutions. As online threats become more sophisticated and consistent, thus our cyber intelligence analysts continue in adapting and improving their methods in cooperation with governments and industry partners, implementing risk-reduction measures in order to beat the threats."
The Canberra center is part of Lockheed Martin's cyber protection network, which includes four facilities in the US, UK and Australia.
