Monday, September 17, 2018

ATLANTA (September 17, 2018) – Spencer Mott, Chief Information Security Officer of McKesson Corporation, has been appointed to serve on the National Technology Security Coalition’s (NTSC) Board of Directors. Representing the healthcare industry, Mott 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.

“Given that I also sit on the board of the National Healthcare Information Sharing and Analysis Center, I am eager to see stronger public-private sector partnerships around cybersecurity,” said Mott. “It’s essential for the security industry to improve threat intelligence sharing between the federal government and the private sector across all industries. An industry-agnostic, non-partisan organization like the NTSC, led by CISOs encompassing a variety of Fortune 1000 companies, is unique in its mission and ability to effect change in Washington D.C. I am honored to join the NTSC Board of Directors with such distinguished peers and I look forward to helping influence national cybersecurity policy.”

As Senior Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer of McKesson Corporation, Mott is responsible for enhancing and overseeing the company’s information protection and cybersecurity strategy. He leads the Information Security & Risk Management team that oversees projects, standards, and controls that mitigate risks, strengthen defenses, and reduce vulnerabilities in a manner that aligns with business goals.

With over 30 years’ experience in technology and security that includes the domestic, international, public, and private sectors, Mott’s industry experience includes healthcare, technology, and government. Prior to McKesson, Mott served as Interim Global Chief Information Officer at Amgen Biotechnology, the world’s largest independent biotechnology company, where he was responsible for leading Amgen’s Global Information Systems organization supporting the global delivery of information systems and successful development and commercialization of Amgen’s drug products, digital solutions, and services.

“Spencer brings decades of valuable experience to the NTSC that will add essential expertise to our board,” said Patrick Gaul, Executive Director of the NTSC. “In addition to his distinguished career as a CISO, Spencer is also on the front lines of cyber threat intelligence sharing with his role at the National Healthcare Information Sharing and Analysis Center. He can also draw from his 15-year police career in UK law enforcement that included work with the National High-Tech Crime Unit, his two technology patents, or his active interest in blockchain, AI, and operations technology. Spencer’s participation on the NTSC board adds to our already impressive credibility as our CISOs work to inform lawmakers about cybersecurity policy.”

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, and our National CISO Policy Conference.

Mott joins a prestigious board of CISOs from leading companies including Aaron’s, Aflac, AIG, Archer Daniels, AutoNation, Baker Hughes, Citi, Cox Automotive, Discover Financial Services, Dollar Tree, Ellie Mae, Globe Life, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Services, Huntington Bank, Johnson & Johnson, MassMutual, Mastercard, Motorola Mobility, NCR, Ohio State University, Pulte Group, Synovus, TaxSlayer, Technology Association of Georgia, TransUnion, Turner, United Airlines, US Bank, Voya Financial, and Western Digital.
