BlackBerry Joins the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA)

The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), a nonprofit public-private partnership focused on helping all digital citizens stay safer and more secure online, today announced that BlackBerry has joined the organization.

BlackBerry brings NCSA sector-leading expertise in software, hardware and Internet of Things security. The company delivers an end-to-end secure platform for mobile communications, and is the only provider with secure and encrypted voice, text, messaging and enterprise file-synch-and-share capabilities. BlackBerry has earned over 70 government certifications and approvals, more than any other mobile vendor, and its technology is trusted by enterprises and governments around the world.

“Organizations and consumers increasingly rely on mobile technology, but they may not fully understand the security and privacy considerations that come with untethered, unlimited access to information,” said Michael Kaiser, NCSA’s Executive Director.

“BlackBerry has made secure mobility a priority and knows how to keep individuals, enterprises and government agencies safe by keeping their data secure. We welcome the unique perspective that BlackBerry brings to the NCSA, and we look forward to working with BlackBerry to solve  cybersecurity challenges, particularly as they relate to mobility and the Internet of Things.”

Edward Hearst, Vice President of U.S. Government Business Development at BlackBerry, who will join the NCSA board said:

“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 National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) is the United States leading nonprofit public-private partnership promoting the safe and secure use of the Internet and digital privacy. Working with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), private sector sponsors and nonprofit collaborators to promote cybersecurity awareness.

NCSA board members include representatives from ADP, AT&T, Bank of America, BlackBerry, Comcast Corporation, EMC Corporation, ESET, Facebook, Google, Intel, Logical Operations, Microsoft, PayPal, PKWARE, Raytheon, Symantec, Verizon and Visa.
