It’s no secret that security is in BlackBerry’s DNA and a priority across our company. Just look no further than our recent Security Summit to learn about how we’re leading in secure mobility and to see our broad security platform in action. And today, we’re reinforcing our commitment to keep data secure and information private by announcing that we’ve joined the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) in the United States.
The NCSA is a nonprofit public-private partnership with a mission to promote online safety and security. The partnership includes the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, private sector sponsors and nonprofit collaborators to promote cybersecurity awareness. The private sector members include leading global companies in technology, financial services and media, and BlackBerry is proud to join these organizations to educate and empower a digital society. Among the NCSA’s key initiatives is the STOP.THINK.CONNECT. awareness and education campaign, Data Privacy Day and National Cyber Security Awareness Month (coming soon in October).
BlackBerry brings a unique perspective to the NCSA. We have been doing mobile security longer and better than anyone else, and we’re at the forefront of making sure that data remains secure as new threats emerge and more endpoints are connected. We’re excited to bring our expertise in software, hardware and Internet of Things security to the table and collaborate with NCSA.
As BlackBerry’s Edward Hearst, Vice President of U.S. Government Business Development, who will represent BlackBerry on the NCSA board, noted in today’s press release:
“In a highly-connected world, security and privacy are paramount, and the world’s most security-conscious organizations depend on BlackBerry’s solutions to keep their data safe and their information private. Through our collaboration with NCSA, we can share BlackBerry’s knowledge and insights to further advance efforts to ensure that the mobile experience is safe and secure for users, no matter what devices they have or information they access.”
The partnership with the NCSA further emphasizes BlackBerry’s commitment to keeping individuals, enterprises and government agencies safe with our unmatched data security capabilities. We’re looking forward to sharing more about our efforts with this great organization. In the meantime, be sure to check out BlackBerry.com/security to learn more!
