Monday, January 4, 2021

ATLANTA, GA (January 4, 2021) – The National Technology Security Coalition (NTSC) welcomes Palo Alto Networks, the global leader in cybersecurity, as a National Underwriter in 2021. By supporting the efforts of CISOs to influence policies that improve national cybersecurity standards and awareness, Palo Alto Networks will participate in NTSC conferences, events, and meetings with CISOs and other cybersecurity policy stakeholders in 2021.

“As organizations strive to prevent cyberattacks, the private sector is supporting their mission when they partner with the public sector,” said Ryan Gillis, VP, Cybersecurity, Strategy and Global Policy at Palo Alto Networks. “The NTSC’s 2021 policy priorities focus on working with Congress to pass important legislation and partnering with federal agencies to improve dialogue, cyber threat intelligence sharing, and critical infrastructure protection. We look forward to supporting the NTSC and these important efforts in 2021.”

“Palo Alto Networks has become an essential part of the tapestry of the cybersecurity industry during the company’s growth over the past 20 years,” said Patrick Gaul, Executive Director of the NTSC. “The company serves customers all over the world, including the companies of many CISOs on our Board of Directors. As our organizations have a great amount of overlap, both the NTSC and Palo Alto Networks understand the important connection between national cybersecurity policy, protecting consumers, enabling businesses, and improving national security. We look forward to our partnership in 2021 as Palo Alto Networks helps the NTSC positively impact legislation, regulations, and policy in Washington, D.C.”
