DHS gives CSP nod to Lockheed Martin

Lockheed Martin, the defense contracting giant, has been accredited as a Commercial Service Provider under the Department of Homeland Security’s Enhanced Cybersecurity Services.

ECS is a voluntary information sharing program intended to help U.S.-based public and private organizations with network improvements and other protections that defend against unauthorized access, exploitation or data exfiltration.  DHS works with cybersecurity organizations from across the federal government to gain access to a broad range of sensitive and classified cyber threat information.  It then shares cyber threat indicators developed through ECS with qualified Commercial Service Providers so they can better protect their customers. 

With the accreditation, Lockheed will now be able to receive sensitive information from DHS to support public and private network defense.

Based on DHS-supplied cyber threat intelligence, Lockheed’s ECS system will quarantine compromised email as well as block malicious activity, according to the company’s statement.
