Lockheed Martin Helps Oil Firms Mitigate Cyber Security Risks

Years of experience protecting some of the world’s most sensitive information has led Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) to develop intelligence-driven cyber security defenses that can provide insight into the sophisticated adversaries targeting oil and gas companies’ intellectual property and operations.

The Lockheed Martin Commercial Cyber Security team will share their expertise at the eighth annual American Petroleum Institute Cyber Security conference.
“Today, our commercial critical infrastructure clients face a new class of security threats from sophisticated and highly organized actors looking to steal intellectual property and disrupt operations,” said Chandra McMahon, vice president of commercial markets for Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions.

“To harden systems against these threats, we have developed a more forward-leaning posture that we call Intelligence Driven Defense®, which enables us to defend ourselves, our partners and our clients against advanced threats by proactively preventing access to critical services and infrastructure.”

During the conference, scheduled for November 12-13, in Houston, Texas, Lockheed Martin’s cyber experts will discuss Intelligence Driven Defense® and how it can provide the insights into the threats facing the oil and gas industry, best practices to protect critical operations, and lessons learned to maximize return on security investment.

Lockheed Martin speakers are as follows:
George Ressopoulos, Lockheed Martin Senior Security Consultant, will present “The Cyber Threat Horizon.”
Jim Pruitt, Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Professional Services Manager will present “Intelligence Driven Defense® for Industrial Control Systems.”
Nicole Powell, Lockheed Martin Cyber Solution Engineer, and Angela Haun, Special Agent & Houston InfraGard Chapter Coordinator, FBI, will present “Understanding and Dealing with a Perpetual State of Breach.”

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and engineering company that employs about 116,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration, and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products, and services. The Corporation’s net sales for 2012 were $47.2 billion.
