Lockheed Martin CEO and President Marillyn Hewson said the cybersecurity framework the White House put forward this week is designed to help industries protect their systems from cyber attacks using guidelines on best practices and strategies, the Washington Business Journal reported Wednesday.
Jill Aitoro writes the company took part in the consultation on the document’s draft, along with 3,000 academic institutions and other companies from various sectors,
Hewson said the result is a voluntary roadmap that a company can follow using a set of guidelines, some of which are already being implemented at Lockheed, according to the report.
“There are a host of things that we’ve learned,” she said, noting the importance of involvement and collaboration with partners and the supply chain to identify possible vulnerabilities or weak links.
“Sharing that through the framework will dramatically help take all of us to the next level,” she added.
