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, Tim McKnight, VP & CISO of Northrop Grumman, serves as the Board Chairman with Jeff Brown, VP & CISO of Raytheon, serving as the ISA Board Vice Chair.
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 proceedings from this invitation-only event are soon-to-be-published in the “Defense of the Global Commons,” Edition II. ISA President Larry Clinton was asked to contribute the chapter on cyber security for this volume, which is set to be published in late 2012.
