Lockheed Martin's cyber security defense model is designed to detect, identify, and respond to an advanced persistent threat with a special emphasis on intelligence analysis. The model ensures a response to attacks that enhances network resiliency, identifies intrusion phases, maps indicators, identifies patterns and defines courses of action to link to broader campaigns.
