Cloud Expert Joins Board at Jericho Forum

Jericho Forum : 28 May, 2010  (Company News)
IT Security think-tank takes on expert in secure computing in environments with unclear perimeters such as cloud computing
Jericho Forum, an international IT security thought leadership association, has announced the results of its recent Board of Management elections. Darren Argyle, certified information security professional (CISSP, CISM) and security services business leader at IBM Security Services, has been elected to join the board. Mr Argyle has been an active member within the Jericho Forum for the last 5 years contributing to the Forum's goal of promoting confidence and operational efficiency for businesses operating in de-perimeterised environments, including Cloud Computing .

"Since its inception, the Jericho Forum has always emphasised the need for technology vendors and users to work together effectively and securely. At IBM we have long recognised that such a collaborative approach is essential - especially for gaining the most value from cloud-based technologies," said Mr Argyle. "At the same time, the new risks associated with cloud infrastructures require proper security processes to be in place, supported by an industry-tested, best practice approach. Key Jericho Forum initiatives such as the Self Assessment Scheme programme are geared to promoting such an approach, which is one of the many reasons why I'm pleased to join the board of management and support what I consider to be ground-breaking work."

With over 15 years' experience in the information security industry, Mr Argyle is a member of many other leading independent information security associations, including ISC2, ISACA and IISP, and represents IBM on both global and UK external security forums, including the Information Security Forum and Centre for the Protection National Infrastructure. He has held a variety of security roles, both as a hands-on practitioner and senior leader, primarily focused on managing risk and compliance in complex multi-vendor outsourced environments.

Jericho Forum Board membership lasts for a period of three years and election is conducted on a one vote per member-organisation basis. Steve Whitlock, chief security strategist at Boeing and a founding Board member, has also been re-elected. Other board members are John Arnold, chief security architect, Capgemini; Philippe Courtot, CEO, Qualys; John Meakin, director of digital security and chief information security officer, BP; Paul Simmonds, global IS integrated assurance director, AstraZeneca; Andrew Yeomans, vice president global information security, Commerzbank.
