Bridging the Technological Divide

Lockheed Martin is training right-fit talent to defeat a new threat
by Vernon R.

I’ve seen innovation in action at Lockheed Martin Cyber University. Nearly four years ago, Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions (IS&GS) recognized the need to build a cyber security workforce with the right skills and motivation to meet our Corporation’s evolving needs and to offer advanced solutions for our customers.

As a result, the Lockheed Martin Cyber University was launched in April 2009. I’m proud to say it is a world-class provider of cyber education, training and certification for security professionals. The university provides hands-on tactical and strategic security training for security executives and network and security professionals. In addition to traditional instructor-led training, the university provides online courses such as CISSP, Security+ and Certified Ethical Hacker. Since the university’s inception, over 1,600 employees have been trained and we’re aligning critical skills and jobs.
