Report: Lockheed Creating Executive Post to Pursue Cybersecurity Awards

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) is creating a senior executive position to pursue new opportunities in “regulated and adjacent markets” for the company’s cybersecurity business, according to a Lexington Institute report.

The executive, who has not been publicly identified, will report to Linda Gooden, director of Lockheed’s information technology business.

Loren B. Thompson writes that as part of a larger push to secure public sector cyber contracts, Gooden is positioning Lockheed to fulfill the government’s presently unmet need to help secure critical private-sector infrastructure against cyber attack.

Lockheed recently streamlined its IT business to focus almost exclusively on information services, software and networks, Thompson notes.

In September, ExecutiveGov covered the Pentagon’s expansion of a 20-firm pilot program through which it is sharing cyber threat intelligence to help better protect its prime contractors.
