British aerospace, technology and security company BAE Systems has partnered up with both Vodafone and CyLon to launch a new initiative aimed at engaging industry partners to tackle the growing issues surrounding cybercrime.

“Cyber criminals use creativity and collaboration to operate at the cutting edge of technology. From a cyber defence perspective, we need to be doing the same,” said Jonathan Luff, Co-Founder of CyLon.

The new body, named The Intelligence Network, is focused on promoting cybersecurity change by improving industry collaboration, simplicity and certainty.

With this in mind, the network has outlined a range of goals to hit by 2025 that include facilitating the sharing of intelligence, enhancing the transparency of security, and making products and services more affordable.

“When discussing the cyber security landscape with our customers, partners and employees, there seems to be a groundswell of support to work together more closely for the greater good,” said Julian Cracknell, Managing Director at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence.

“The Intelligence Network is an initiative which we hope will unite a community of like-minded global security professionals and industry influencers who share our vision.”

Founding members of the initiative include Andrzej Kawalec at Vodafone, Jonathan Luff at CyLon and James Sulivan at RUSI.
