In face of growing cybersecurity threats, DOD enlists Lockheed Martin

VALLEY FORGE, Pa., 5 May 2012. The Department of Defense (DOD) is constantly under attack by hackers who would like to access confidential information, steal identities and share DOD secrets. In order to combat this new threat, Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) will be teaming with the Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center (DC3).

The company has been selected to deliver technical, functional, and managerial support to the DC3. The work will be conducted through a task order awarded by the General Services Administration’s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center. The task order has a value of up to $454 million if all options are exercised.

The DC3 sets standards for digital evidence processing, analysis, and diagnostics for any DOD investigation that requires computer forensic support to detect, enhance, or recover digital media, including audio and video. The center assists in criminal, counterintelligence, counterterrorism, and fraud investigations of the Defense Criminal Investigative Organizations (DCIOs) and DOD counterintelligence activities.

Because of its importance, the DOD is targeted by cyber criminals ranging from terrorists to spies to identity thieves. The methods of attack are varied, which lends importance to proper investigation and prevention.

Lockheed Martin’s scope of work will include digital and multimedia forensics examination, analysis, research, development, test and evaluation, information technology and cyber analytical services. The work will be conducted at DC3 headquarters in Linthicum, Md.
