BAE Systems' cybersecurity arm has named the first members of The Intelligence Network, an industry forum and lobbying group.
The 10 individuals who will lead The Intelligence Network's steering committee, and who met for the first time today, according to Sky News are:
- James Hatch, director of cyber at BAE Systems
- Andrzej Kawalec, security CTO at Vodafone
- Paul Lynch, CISO at ITV
- Roxanne Morison, principal policy adviser at CBI
- James Sullivan, cyber programme lead at RUSI
- Mark Swift, CISO at Trafigura
- Peder Jungck, vice president of intelligence solutions at BAE
- Christina Richmond, program vice president at IDC security services
- Sian John, executive security adviser at Microsoft
- Jonathan Luff, co-founder at CyLon
The network's goal is to go beyond basic intelligence sharing and work together to lobby the government for improved laws and regulations that would improve the level of cybersecurity being delivered.
Other areas the group may look at are "establishing communities of interest and collaboration, developing and promoting business and technology best practices to address security challenges, and exploring new business models for security provision that operate for the benefit of society,” said James Hatch, director of cyber at BAE, as quoted by Sky News.
