    Lockheed Martin announced a partnership with the Interset cyber security firm to develop protection programs against insider threats.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – One of the largest defense contractors in the United States is joining forces with the Interset cyber security firm to develop protection programs against insider threats within organizations, Lockheed Martin said in a press release on Monday.

    “Lockheed Martin… announced a commercial cyber partnership with Interset’s insider threat detection solution at the 2016 Gartner Risk and Security Summit conference in National Harbor, Maryland,” the release stated.

    The Interset Threat Detection Platform uses machine learning, patented predictive analytics and risk-based scoring to automate the process of sifting through terabytes of events to detect and surface true insider threats, the release explained.

    “Insider Threats pose one of the highest risks to an organization, and thefts by malicious insiders are projected to double by 2017, approaching half a trillion dollars annually,” Lockheed Martin Commercial Cyber Vice President Angie Heise said.

    Lockheed Martin Commercial Cyber specializes in developing, implementing, maintaining and securing critical infrastructures for Fortune 1000 and Global 1000 companies.
