Cloud Security Alliance Gains Lockheed Martin To Membership List

Lockheed Martin Information Systems And Global Services : 29 July, 2010  (Company News)
Lockheed Martin Information Systems contributes to the development of secure cloud computing environments through joining the Cloud Security Alliance
Lockheed Martin has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) as a corporate member and the first systems integrator to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within cloud computing. Lockheed Martin will support the Cloud Security Alliance's initiatives through collaboration and partnership with other alliance members to address key security concerns and trust issues pertaining to adoption of cloud computing.

'Lockheed Martin is working with a variety of customers in government, energy and health IT markets who are seeking the benefits associated with cloud computing yet often come to us for guidance about how best to deliver cloud services on their enterprise including which service providers, technologies and applications to integrate. We are anxious to collaborate with the CSA members to share and recommend ways to meet security concerns and to continue to build awareness and trust among our public and private sector customers as it relates to cloud adoption,' said Rick Johnson, Chief Technology Officer and Vice President, Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions.

'We are pleased to see Lockheed Martin join the Cloud Security Alliance as the first major systems integrator to come on board. This sends a message to the marketplace about the significance of cloud computing to both the government and industry. Lockheed Martin's experience working with enterprise public sector and private sector customers gives them a unique vantage point and will bring us valuable insight as we develop our guidance and best practices,' said Jim Reavis, co-founder and Executive Director of the Cloud Security Alliance.

Lockheed Martin and its Cyber Security Alliance, formed in 2009, recently conducted a public sector survey to measure attitudes about cloud computing and cyber security topics. Among its findings, the survey revealed 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. A white paper titled 'Awareness, Trust, and Security to Shape Cloud Adoption' was written to share details and findings and can be viewed online.

The Cloud Security Alliance is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within Cloud Computing, and to provide education on the uses of Cloud Computing to help secure all other forms of computing. The Cloud Security Alliance is led by a broad coalition of industry practitioners, corporations, associations and other key stakeholders.
