Many of the major Aerospace and Defense Industry corporations participate in ISA, including Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, SAIC, and Boeing.  In fact, most of these major defense firms sit on the ISA Board, and currently, Jeff Brown, the VP & CISO of Raytheon, serves on the ISA Board as its Vice Chairman.

Aerospace and Defense firms look to ISA to engage in thought leadership on a range of issues of keen interest to their industry, including supply chain management, information sharing, combating the APT, Enterprise Risk Management, and, of course, public policy.

ISA’s success in representing these firms is reflected in the high marks Aerospace and Defense firms provide during the annual ISA membership review.

Following the publication of ISA’s signature document, the Cyber Security “Social Contract,” ISA was asked to do a special briefing at the NATO Cyber Centre for Excellence.

ISA was also the only trade association invited to address the NATO and U.S. War College sponsored “Defense of the Global Commons” Conference in 2010 at the U.S. War College’s Naval Postgraduate School.   Much of the topical proceedings from this invitation-only event are described in the recently published “Conflict in the Global Commons,” Edition II.  ISA President Larry Clinton authored the chapter on cyber security for this volume, which was published in late September 2012.
