ExecutiveBiz selected Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) cybersecurity expert Steve Hawkins as one of its “Top 20 People to Watch in 2011.”
According to the publication:
“Hawkins is helping Raytheon — a $25 billion-plus defense and aerospace corporation — deliver on that need for rapid-fire response. One of the company’s key approaches, over the last year, has been to collaborate with industry, commercial partners, and national labs in building a new analytics system that easily scales what has been described as trillions of entities in a highly distributable — and extendable — framework.
“’With nearly a third of all humans on the internet, the civil, commercial, and military worlds are swimming in data — in fact, too much data, ‘ Hawkins said this past June. ‘It is imperative for today’s defense establishment to ensure both scalability and operability when deriving actionable intelligence from increasingly staggering volumes of intelligence data coming in to the various branches of government.'”
