ICIT’s Executive Director, Joyce Hunter has been appointed as Chair of CyberAg’s newly established advisory board, as noted here in Security magazine.

CyberAg was created to advocate for increased cybersecurity investment in the U.S. Food Supply Chain. Joyce will lead strategy development for CyberAg’s advisory services for the USDA, Farm Credit System and Industry partners.

“Agricultural cybersecurity is a rising concern as farmers adopt IoT technologies more rapidly,” said Hunter. “We must consider the speed of execution of these initiatives, and CyberAg is positioned to provide the resources necessary to aid American farmers immediately.”

With more than three decades of experience in the information technology industry, Hunter was appointed by President Barack Obama as the Deputy Chief Information Officer (CIO), then Acting CIO of the USDA and was named by Security magazine as one of the Most Influential People in Security in 2020.
