Do we really need this?
There is already a vast proliferation of cyber security industry bodies, advocates, advice centres, co-ordinating centres. I am sure they all mean well, but their very number means that advice to those who need it becomes diffuse and they all compete for the same relatively small pool of funds and resources from commercial and government interests.
John Lyons, ICSPA's CEO, has a background in the RAF, the old NHTCU and FIRST. But the number of current sponsors is really quite small and EUROPOL is scarcely the most important of international law enforcement players.
Wouldn't it be better if the resources ICSPA has so far gathered were put at the disposal of one of the existing rather similar ventures? (And no, I am not going to recommend any specific one because you will then think I have a favourite of my own)
