GAITHERSBURG, Md., Oct. 24 (UPI) -- Lockheed Martin has established a continuous diagnostics and mitigation laboratory and is conducting workshops to help government with cybersecurity.

The laboratory in Gaithersburg, Md., was opened to support a Department of Homeland Security program.

It demonstrates commercial cybersecurity products and company integration services and conducts associated workshops.

"Lockheed Martin's [continuous diagnostics and mitigation] lab makes tangible the many benefits of Lockheed Martin's cyberdefense tools and will increase the speed and efficiency of government cybersecurity implementation," said Greg Boison, director of homeland and cybersecurity for Lockheed Martin's Information Systems & Global Solutions business. "By using the Lockheed Martin Cyber Kill Chain with an intelligence-driven defense approach, our methodology provides unique benefits and assurance to customers proven in defense of our own enterprise systems."

The facility and workshops are open to federal, state and local government organizations.

Under continuous diagnostics and mitigation, advanced cyber security tools and services will ensure unclassified government networks will be constantly scanned for threats, defended from attacks and audited for performance, the company said.
