AMD, Intel, others form Cyber Security Research Alliance

Chip manufacturers joined by Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, RSA

Unlikely allies AMD and Intel have been joined by Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, and RSA to form the Cyber Security Research Alliance, a private, non-profit research consortium. The tech giant think tank has been formed to address the growing need for collaborative efforts to address complex problems in cyber security. Priority research areas for the organization will include data and information sharing, control system security, and threat mitigation.

"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 from the Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions department. "Together we hope to create viable, game-changing cyber security solutions."

Initially, the CSRA will focus on the construction of the organization, developing collaboration models between the disparate groups, and launching public initiatives including tracking cybersecurity R&D activities and developing viable approaches to technology transfer.

The organization noted that it plans on holding a joint cyber security research symposium in early 2013 with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to connect researchers and early adopters from the private, academic, and government sectors.
