Firebrand Launch Support for BAE Systems' Intelligence Network

Firebrand supports BAE Systems Intelligence Network

Firebrand has just announced corporate support for BAE Systems’ Intelligence Network, a growing community of cyber and financial crime professionals and industry figures.

Launched in July 2018, The Intelligence Network aims to understand and tackle the cyber security challenges facing businesses and consumers across the world.

In less than 9 months 1400 professionals globally have already joined it, including Microsoft, ITV and now Firebrand Training.

As an industry-leading provider of cyber security training to UK businesses and law enforcement, Firebrand’s support for The Intelligence Network will come as little surprise to most.

As members of The Intelligence Network, Firebrand are demonstrating a commitment to the Manifesto for a safer digital world. It is the view of BAE Systems and supporters like Firebrand that the size and scale of societal cyber security issues requires a response from a community, rather than just one organisation alone.

Upon announcing support, Robert Chapman, CEO and co-founder of Firebrand Training, said:

“I’m excited to be part of an initiative tackling widespread cyber security issues head-on. As a business that delivers award-winning cyber security training across the world, we understand exactly how crucial these skills are.

“We’re looking forward to contributing our specialist cyber security knowledge through our pool of renowned industry trainers, thought leadership, surveys and focus groups. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to contribute and share our knowledge with the world.”
