Monday, March 19, 2018

ATLANTA, GA (March 19, 2018) – The National Technology Security Coalition (NTSC) welcomes four new members to its Policy Council in 2018: Dennis Ambach, Vice President of Government Affairs at TransUnion; Peggy Camerino, Associate General Counsel of Torchmark Affiliated Companies; Justin Clay, Vice President of Global Government Relations of NCR; and Daniel Paltiel, Security Intelligence Analyst of U.S. Bank. The NTSC Policy Council is comprised of leading cyber attorneys, policy experts, and NTSC member companies’ government affairs professionals who advise the Board of Directors on CISO-related cybersecurity policy issues.

These four new Policy Council members join Board Chair Robert Ball, General Counsel and Chief Business Development Officer of Ionic Security; Roy Hadley, Special Counsel of Adams and Reese LLP; Brad Knox, Vice President and Counsel of Aflac Federal Affairs; Shawn Tuma, Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Counsel of Scheef & Stone; and Douglas Weiner, Cybersecurity Counsel of Hewlett-Packard Enterprise.

“We are happy to support the National Technology Security Coalition’s important mission to improve national cybersecurity standards and awareness through better policy and legislation,” said Ball. “We are excited to welcome some of the world’s leading experts on cybersecurity law and policy to the Policy Council, and we’re looking forward to having them help inform and guide our positions on national cybersecurity policy as we engage in dialogue with policymakers in Washington, D.C.”

The NTSC Policy Council considers cybersecurity issues as they pertain to the role of the CISO and submits advocacy recommendations to the NTSC Board for review and approval. Working closely with the NTSC’s advocacy efforts, the Policy Council also keeps the Board informed about important details, trends, and updates related to national cybersecurity law and policy.

“Cybersecurity laws, policies, and regulations are complex and fast-changing,” said Kimberly Steele, Associate Director of the NTSC. “When the NTSC develops and makes national cybersecurity policy recommendations at a strategic level, we need to also understand the granular details about what we are recommending. The growth of our Policy Council to include more distinguished cybersecurity policy experts is crucial to help ensure that our policy recommendations are as sound as possible before we announce our positions to the public.”
