WHAT IS THE SECURITY SECTOR BOARD?
The ADS Security Sector Board (SSB) is the primary membership forum for overseeing ADS’s security policy and business development activity, which serves to ensure that ADS is seen as the ‘go to’ security industry trade organisation in the country. The group is made-up of individuals from companies of all sizes operating within national security, resilience and policing markets, who serve the industry by maintaining strategic oversight of the activities of the ADS security and resilience team.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE GROUP?
The purpose of the SSB is to represent the interests of ADS member companies operating in security and resilience markets, both within the UK and internationally, and maintain strategic oversight of the organisation’s security and resilience-related strategy and associated activity. The group works closely in support of the objectives of the UK Security and Resilience Industry Suppliers’ Community (RISC), for which ADS provides secretariat support and is a leading contributor, and a wide range of other relevant stakeholders in Government, Law Enforcement and across industry. In addition to proving overarching policy direction for ADS’s security and resilience programme, the SSB works with all other relevant ADS Boards, Committees and Special Interest Groups that have a security interest.
From January 2021, the following four members of the SSB have been elected to serve as the security and resilience sector’s leadership team on the reconstituted ADS Board:
Vice President: Michael Clayforth-Carr, Leonardo
Additional SSB Representatives: Caroline Flynn-MacLeod, Terrington Management LLP; Moira Andrews, Praetor; and Elizabeth Sheldon, Evidence Talks
HOW DO I JOIN THE GROUP?
The SSB is chaired by the Vice President of Security at ADS, Michael Clayforth-Carr, and the group is an inclusive forum membership that is open to active members of ADS operating in the security and resilience market. Active and two-way participation is encouraged and members interested in joining the group should contact ADS’s Director of Security and Resilience, Jon Gray, for a discussion and to learn about its requirements (E. firstname.lastname@example.org). The group is also supported by the Security Policy Adviser, Nathan Mathiot, (email@example.com), who advises and maintains the Minutes for the Group, and Tracey Higgs (firstname.lastname@example.org) who provides additional secretariat support.
