Axon Global Services (Axon), at the request of the Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Agency CISCP, presented its experience on the topic, “How executive leadership teams view cyber security; risk; and how they make decisions regarding people, process, and funding.” Presenting as subject matter experts were Israel Martinez, President & CEO of Axon, and Stuart Tryon Senior Vice President of Axon and formerly the Deputy Assistant Director of the U.S. Secret Service.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cyber Information Sharing and Collaboration Program (CISCP), who hosted the session, enables actionable, relevant, and timely information exchange through trusted public-private partnerships across all critical infrastructure (CI) sectors. CISCP fosters this collaboration by leveraging the depth and breadth of DHS cybersecurity capabilities within a focused operational context.
Israel Martinez, Axon’s CEO stated, “DHS CISA has been a powerful force in raising the cybersecurity disposition of our country. We’re glad to be a part of giving back. All of the work we’ve done for government in the past 10 years has been pro-bono, in the interest of improving the cybersecurity posture of our country and we’re blessed to be able to so.”
Stuart Tryon, SVP of Axon; formerly Head of Security Operations at Uber; and former Deputy Assistant Director for the U.S. Secret Service, Office of Special Intelligence, stated, “It was a pleasure contributing to today’s program. I look forward to future engagements with DHS CISA and assisting their corporate partners.”
