Elkridge, Md., April 27th, 2009 — Teams of cyber security experts from the National Security Agency (NSA) and the nation’s service academies squared off last week in one of the nation’s most expansive and sophisticated cyber “war games,” the Cyber Defense Exercise (CDX). Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] hosted the CDX command center and network hub at its Elkridge facility for the week-long event.
Lockheed Martin helped NSA establish a closed, secure network for the exercise, which links all the academies with CDX headquarters at the Lockheed Martin facility in Elkridge. The company is also providing technical support and expertise for CDX preparation and execution. This is the seventh year that Lockheed Martin is supporting and hosting the CDX.
