GAITHERSBURG, Md., 19 Jan. 2010. Lockheed Martin managers have announced evolving talent and workforce development initiatives designed to fill the critical need for a certified and trained cyber security workforce.

Lockheed Martin's commitment to this field, says a company representative, includes: implementation of a Cyber University; university recruiting; cyber career paths; mentoring; knowledge transfer; and competitive compensation. In addition, new academic graduate scholarships have been awarded to students at Carnegie Melon University, Purdue University, and the University of Maryland.

"Cyber Security is embedded in everything Lockheed Martin delivers and our people are critical to ensuring mission resilience for our customers. The company recognizes the significance of its cyber workforce and has invested more than $1 million in university recruiting, scholarships and training," explains Rick Johnson, vice president and chief technology officer, Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Services.

Current and new employees can leverage cyber security training and education to include CISSP certification, Security +, and technology training from Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Alliance Partners Cisco and McAfee.
