“I am pleased to welcome CrowdStrike as a BSA global member,” said Victoria Espinel, President and CEO of BSA. “Cybersecurity safeguards digital transformation and must be a priority for enterprises and policymakers as digital services play an increasing role in our lives. I look forward to collaborating with CrowdStrike and fellow BSA members on policies that improve cybersecurity for emerging technologies, modernize government IT, and cultivate a cyber workforce trained to handle the evolving threat landscape.”
