NSA gives Lockheed cyber incident response accreditation

Lockheed Martin earned accreditation from the National Security Agency under a new NSA program designed to recognize companies suited to help other organizations respond to cyberattacks.

The NSA’s Cyber Incident Response Assistance Accreditation (CIRA) program meets a growing need to leverage the cyber security expertise of industry leaders, according to Lockheed.

To be qualified as a CIRA service provider, Lockheed Martin said it was evaluated based on its ability to deliver consistent services and maintain a qualified staff to deliver cyber incident response services.

The evaluation process also included a review of the company's ability to deliver 21 critical focus areas of incident response assistance services to owners and operators of National Security Systems.

The CIRA program is a part of the NSA Information Assurance Directorate’s National Security Cyber Assistance Program. The program focuses on intrusion detection, incident response, vulnerability assessment and penetration testing.
