GAITHERSBURG, Md., Aug. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has accredited Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) as a Commercial Service Provider (CSP) under DHS' Enhanced Cybersecurity Services (ECS) program. The accreditation allows DHS to share sensitive and classified cybersecurity threat information with Lockheed Martin to support its efforts in defending public and private entities against cyber attacks.
