WASHINGTON, March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) is
collaborating with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to operate as a
commercial service provider under the recently expanded Enhanced Cybersecurity
Services (ECS) program outlined in President Obama's Executive Order on
Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity. ECS is a voluntary
information sharing program that assists critical infrastructure owners and
operators as they improve the protection of their systems from unauthorized
access, exploitation or data exfiltration.

industrial base and other sectors of critical infrastructure. Raytheon,

quickly analyze threats and defend against them, bolstering mission assurance.

"Information sharing and collaboration between government and industry
partners is critical to defending our nation against the cyber threat," said
Steven K. Hawkins, vice president of the Information Security Solutions
product line for Raytheon's Intelligence and Information Systems business.

resiliency for our nation's most critical resources."
