Jones Day CISO Kevin Morrison Joins NTSC Board of Directors
ATLANTA (December 12, 2017) – Kevin Morrison, Head of Information Security for Jones Day, has been appointed to serve on the National Technology Security Coalition’s (NTSC) Board of Directors. Representing the legal industry, Morrison will help influence the strategic direction of the NTSC and join CISOs who represent a broad cross-section of enterprise companies. These CISOs have a vested interest in protecting the security of their customers and employees through policies that improve national cybersecurity standards and awareness.
“In my role with Jones Day, I am especially aware of how law and policy impacts cybersecurity,” said Morrison. “I’ve led security initiatives and built teams in the context of heavy regulation while also serving on several advisory and governance boards. I’m excited about the mission of the NTSC and I look forward to offering my experience at a national level to help influence cybersecurity policy in Washington D.C.”
Morrison’s background spans more than 19 years in IT, with over 14 of those years in information and cyber security. His passion for people and security has included building and leading teams focused on incident management, operations, DLP, mobility, forensics, policy, privacy, and business continuity in highly regulated and service-oriented environments across public and private industries. In March 2015, Morrison was selected by his peers as the ISE® Southeast People's Choice Award Winner.
“Kevin brings not only deep information security experience to his role as a CISO but also offers a unique regulatory perspective from his experience at Jones Day navigating cybersecurity in the legal industry,” said Patrick Gaul, Executive Director of the NTSC. “The NTSC benefits from CISOs like Kevin who provide us with insights about how national cybersecurity laws and policies affect different industries in both the public and private sectors.”
The NTSC provides a platform for CISOs to advocate for beneficial legislative and regulatory policies. We encourage dialogue about cybersecurity issues, laws, and regulations through advocacy engagement with congressional members, regional CISO policy roundtables, our annual DC Fly-In, and our National CISO Policy Conference.
Morrison joins a prestigious board of CISOs from leading companies including Aaron’s, Aetna, Aflac, AutoNation, Cox Automotive, Discover Financial Services, Ellie Mae, Epsilon, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Services, IAC/InterActiveCorp, Johnson & Johnson, MoneyGram International, Motorola Mobility, NCR, SunTrust, Synovus, TaxSlayer, Torchmark, Turner, US Bank, Worldpay, and Yum! Brands.
