DHS to Apply Lockheed ‘Kill Chain’ Method for Internal Network Security

US department of homeland securityThe Department of Homeland Security plans to revamp its internal network security methods by implementing a Lockheed Martin-developed intrusion defense chain mechanism known as a “kill chain,” Nextgov reported Friday.

Aliya Sternstein writes that kill chain uses predictive analysis of cyber attack behavior and works to deploy countermeasures for stopping an attack at any point in a chain.

DHS’ office of the chief information security officer is seeking information on possible metrics to measure the effectiveness of DHS’ security operations center, potential staffing and facilities needs and delegation of authority to DHS agencies.

DHS is shifting responsibilities for the SOC to the CISO’s office as part of the department’s revamp plans, Sternstein reports.
