Intel, AMD, Lockheed, Honeywell Form Cyber Security Alliance

AMD, Honeywell, Intel, Lockheed Martin, and RSA/EMC said they have created the Cyber Security Research Alliance (CSRA), which aims to promote collaboration and coordinate "national cyber security research and development (R&D) imperatives". In addition, the CSRA hopes to "bridge the gap between government funded R&D and commercially available products and solutions in cyber security".

As one of its initial action items, the CSRA is working with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to organize a joint cyber security research symposium in early 2013 to enable a discussion between security technology researchers as well as early adopters from across the private, academic, and government sectors. As its primary focus areas, the CSRA said it will track cyber security R&D activities, prioritize cyber security challenges, and develop viable ways how to transfer technology.

"The CSRA is organized to leverage expertise, from member companies and partners in government and academia," said Lee Holcomb, president of the CSRA and vice president of strategic initiatives, Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions. "Together we hope to create viable, game changing cyber security solutions."

    Wow this is major news! I am tired of reading reports of the United States getting hacked. We really need to beef up our national cyber security.

    Didn't Lockheed buy that D-Wave 1 a year or so back? I still would love to know what they've been doing with it...
