ATLANTA, GA (February 19, 2018) – IBM Security and Juniper Networks are renewing their roles as National Underwriters of the National Technology Security Coalition (NTSC) in 2018 after serving as National Underwriters in 2017. By supporting the efforts of CISOs to influence policies that improve national cybersecurity standards and awareness, IBM Security and Juniper Networks will participate in NTSC conferences, events, and meetings with CISOs and other cybersecurity policy stakeholders in 2018.
“Data is now our most valuable resource, and ownership and security of that data can subject companies to threats of cybercrime,” said Brian Rosenberg, Corporate Vice President, Global Partners and Alliances for Juniper Networks. “As Juniper Networks continues to innovate in areas such as AI, security, and automation that will help advance the future of cybersecurity, we are supportive of national cybersecurity laws, policies, and regulations that help us move forward as an industry. A non-profit, non-partisan organization like the National Technology Security Coalition that unites CISOs across all industries is essential for helping us maintain a productive dialogue with Washington lawmakers. We want to continue supporting the NTSC’s efforts in whatever way we can.”
“As a company that’s heavily involved and ingrained with the national CISO community, IBM Security finds it essential to support this important organization that focuses on improving national cybersecurity policy,” said Ben Hendrick, Partner & Global Competency Leader for IBM Security’s Infrastructure & Endpoint Security (IES). “Every day at IBM Security, we see the constant threats that businesses face from increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks. National cybersecurity policy needs to help CISOs and technology security companies fend off these attacks. The NTSC is helping us go in the right direction, and we are honored to continue providing underwriting support.”
“IBM Security and Juniper Networks are two of the most innovative and omnipresent technology companies in the cybersecurity space, and we are thrilled to have their continued participation as underwriters,” said Patrick Gaul, Executive Director of the NTSC. “They will continue to engage with CISOs and cybersecurity stakeholders from across the United States while also sharing their thoughts about national cybersecurity policy issues and how they impact American businesses and consumers. These companies will continue to influence our mission and activities in 2018.”
