The Information Systems and Global Services Division of Lockheed Martin has produced a collaborative report on cloud computing security and awareness levels with government technology decision makers
Lockheed Martin and its Cyber Security Alliance partners have announced the results of a collaborative cloud computing and cyber security survey in a new white paper titled 'Awareness, Trust, and Security to Shape Cloud Adoption.' The survey found that 70% of government technology decision makers in federal, defense/military and intelligence agencies were most concerned about data security, privacy and integrity in the cloud. The white paper documents and outlines the following:


* Presents a snapshot view of cloud computing adoption in U.S. federal government, defense/military and intelligence agencies

* Documents trust levels related to cloud computing, outsourcing and different delivery models

* Identifies specific cloud computing and cyber security concerns

* Highlights governance issues

* Presents recommendations to help government agencies prepare to adopt, secure and manage cloud computing


'Seamless security is critical to protecting our customers' information in the cloud. Collaboration with industry partners and government will accelerate innovation and adoption while enabling successful cloud implementations in the public sector,' said Rick Johnson, Chief Technology Officer and Vice President, Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Services.

The Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Alliance commissioned Market Connections, Inc. to conduct an online survey of U.S. federal government, defense/military, and intelligence agency technology decision makers. The survey measured awareness and attitudes about cloud computing and cyber security topics. Survey results reflect input from 198 respondents from all military branches and a variety of federal government agencies.

The Cyber Security Alliance was established in 2009 and announced with the opening of Lockheed Martin's NexGen Cyber Innovation and Technology Center. The Alliance's mission is to address cyber security challenges through innovation and consists of the following technology companies: APC by Schneider Electric, CA, Cisco, Dell, EMC Corporation and its RSA Security Division, HP, Intel, Juniper Networks, McAfee, Microsoft, NetApp, Symantec and VMware.
