Lockheed Martin program receives award from security magazine

Lockheed Martin Corporation, a Bethesda, Maryland-based global security company, announced on Tuesday that its Insider Threat Detection Program was recognized with an award from Chief Security Officer magazine.

The ITDP proactively identifies and mitigates internal risks related to the misuse or theft of trade secrets and intellectual property. Lockheed Martin said the program can identify employees who are at higher risk for being targeted by foreign intelligence or who are more likely to misuse access privileges.

"U.S. corporations have seen a dramatic increase in economic and industrial espionage threats over the past five years and we do not see this trending data decreasing for the foreseeable future," Robert Trono, the vice president and chief security officer of Lockheed Martin, said. "We are honored to be recognized for our approach and use of data analytics for addressing insider threats. Our investments in this program will not only add to the security and safeguarding of our personnel, our company's proprietary information, and our reputation, but also to national and economic security."

Lockheed Martin makes the scalable ITDP available to both commercial and government customers. The program is part of the effort to address the growing problem of insider threats.

"Even in the early stages program deployment, our ITDP has been lauded by both government agencies and private industry partners as the program after which other programs should be modeled," Trono said.

The CSO40 awards programs recognizes 40 organizations for security initiatives and projects that demonstrate outstanding thought leadership and business value. Lockheed Martin will receive the award during the CSO40 Security Confab + Awards between March 31 and April 2 at the Chateau Elan in Braselton, Ga.
