IBM has established strategies to participate in government and industry collaboration to help advance national cybersecurity, said Katharyn White, vice president of the company’s U.S. federal ecosystem unit.
White wrote in an article published Thursday the company supports President Joe Biden’s Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity through a collaborative approach.
She said IBM believes that partnerships between public and private sector organizations work as a “superpower,” echoing the statement made by Jen Easterly, director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, at the Billington Cybersecurity Summit.
The company applies its ecosystem framework to execute research and development partnerships, collective and cross-functional engagement in business prospects and shared creation of technological means of addressing governmental challenges.
IBM formed its first issue-based working group to help expedite progress on the cybersecurity executive order by identifying best practices and gaps in zero trust approaches to network modernization.
The computer technology provider expanded its partnerships with Four Inc. and TD Synnex as part of efforts to guide small and minority-owned businesses through federal government processes.
