“Threats to cyber security are one of the greatest challenges that governments and civil organizations face today. The need for good cyber security is a high priority for many countries and cyber security education is rightly viewed as a key enabler,” said Paul Davison, vice president, Northrop Grumman Information Systems Europe. “We are pleased to be able to share our specialist knowledge and experience in this domain to help raise the level of awareness of cyber security issues among the Brunei defence and industry communities.” Backed by more than 20 years of experience, Northrop Grumman is a recognized thought leader and trusted provider of cyber security solutions across every sector: intelligence, defence, civil, commercial, and central and local government.
