Hackers may have infiltrated the networks of top U.S. weapons manufacturer Lockheed Martin Corp., according to a person with knowledge of the attacks.
The security disruptions, reported Thursday by Reuters, prompted the company to step up measures to protect its data. It wasn’t immediately clear if any sensitive information was stolen or compromised.
Lockheed spokesman Jeffery Adams said the company, as a matter of policy, didn’t discuss specific cyber threats or measures taken in response.
“However, to counter any threats, we regularly take actions to increase the security of our systems and to protect our employee, customer and program data,” he said. “We have policies and procedures in place to mitigate the cyber threats to our business, and we remain confident in the integrity of our robust, multilayered information systems security.
