Taylor Hersom, Vice President of Business Development for CyberCompass® and head of virtual services for Third Rock, has been asked to serve on the very prestigious CompTIA Cybersecurity Advisory Board (CCAB). CompTIA is the world’s leading tech association as well as a thought and action leader. CCAB addresses many of the most pressing cybersecurity concerns facing business and government. The board works to identify opportunities for CompTIA to develop cybersecurity initiatives that advance our nation’s cybersecurity readiness. In addition, the CCAB assesses current CompTIA activities relating to cybersecurity and recommends how to integrate those efforts with other thought leaders on the topic, while also identifying gaps in the cybersecurity ecosystem that CompTIA might consider filling.
Hersom will be working with thought leaders from higher education, legal and cybersecurity fields. The CCAB’s main purpose is to provide a venue where these members can discuss the most critical issues the industry faces, leading to prioritized projects and actionable results. Recently, CompTIA has been actively involved in working with Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to maintain critical functions throughout the COVID-19 pandemic (see full article here) as well to providing thought leadership with emerging transformational technologies such as 5G.
