Raytheon Teams with West Point Cadets to Study Insider Threat

Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point are working together on a study about insider threats on war front lines.

According to the firm, “cadets from West Point’s department of electrical engineering and computer science are conducting a study to determine how insiders typically attack within a forward operating base on war front lines. They will then make recommendations on how to detect and deter these threats. The project provides cadets with opportunities to apply theory and newfound knowledge to real-world military challenges that they may soon face.”

The cadets working on the study will present their findings to date at the Information Assurance Symposium being held this week in Nashville.

“There is a good chance these cadets will be on the front lines, and there won’t be time to continually scrutinize everyone with access to operational plans to ensure they have no malicious intent, ” said Jeanne Robinson, chief architect of Raytheon Information Security Solutions. “This study will help fine-tune SureView to detect insider threats specific to a forward operating base. SureView will be their eyes and ears, their 24/7 watch to combat the insider threat — literally saving lives.”
