New technologies such as artificial intelligence, augmented reality and networked factories are poised to revolutionize the way we design, build and sustain our products and services. The interconnected nature of these new technologies creates opportunities for greater efficiency but also expands the scope of activities, which operate in a computer network environment. This presents significant challenges to our ability to protect our products and services against increasingly sophisticated cyber threats.
To address these risks, Lockheed Martin is delivering full-spectrum cyber capabilities and cyber resilient systems to our defense, intelligence community and global security customers. From initial concept to life-cycle sustainment, we consider and integrate full-spectrum cyber capabilities into everything we deliver to our customers. Lockheed Martin provides services and builds the platforms, tradecraft and tools proven to help our customers move faster, be safer, improve quality and contain costs for critical missions.
Our classified cybersecurity operations are fully integrated with the Lockheed Martin Fusion Center that was launched in 2020. We leverage our industry-leading Insider Threat tools within our classified environments to facilitate the protection of our customers most sensitive technologies and programs.
Lockheed Martin introduced the Cyber Resiliency Level® (CRL®) framework in 2019 as the world’s first, standard method to measure the cyber resiliency maturity of a weapon system, regardless of where the weapon system is in its life-cycle. In support of that CRL® framework, Lockheed Martin created the Cyber Resiliency Scoreboard™ (CRS™) in 2020 to help customers make informed decisions for prioritizing their resources on the most impactful cybersecurity solutions. CRS™ includes a survey tool and a dashboard displaying qualitative and quantifiable performance metrics used to guide stakeholders in selecting courses of action for increased cyber resilience of systems from conception through delivery to retirement. CRS™ has been successfully applied to numerous programs across each of our Business Areas to help our customers mitigate risks and determine which mitigations provide the most cost-effective benefits.
In partnership with Lockheed Martin Global Supply Chain Operations, Supply Chain Cyber provided a briefing on Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) "Bridging the Gaps to Accelerate CMMC Preparation" via virtual webinar in 2020. This was the most attended supplier webinar to date.
