Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center Names New Executive Director

The Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center (R-CISC) will expand its sharing capabilities in the coming months.

Washington, DC -- The Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center (R-CISC) announced today it has hired Suzie Squier to serve as its executive director. As executive director of the center, Squier reports directly to the R-CISC Board of Directors and is responsible for management of the organization, and continuing to develop and expand the capabilities of the center’s Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAC).

Squier has been connected to the R-CISC from day one and has a wealth of management experience. In her previous role at the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA), Squier was integral in the origination and formation of the R-CISC. As RILA’s executive vice president of member services, she also oversaw the membership and marketing functions, and had oversight of the CIO Leaders Council, Cybersecurity Leaders Council and the Internal Audit Committee.

"The Board of Directors is excited about what the future holds for the R-CISC with the team in place and the addition of Suzie and her leadership," Jim Cameli, chair of the R-CISC and global CISO at Walgreens Boots Alliance, said. "We have a great deal of positive momentum, and are looking forward to implementing the next iteration of R-CISC’s sharing platform."

Squier officially began as executive director of the R-CISC earlier this month. She replaced Brian Engle who had previously served in the role. Squier oversees all operations of the R-CISC, including the Retail ISAC, membership engagement and education. She will play an integral role in continuing to move the R-CISC forward. Two key aspects of that are the new sharing architecture to be announced later this summer and the R-CISC’s Retail Cyber Intelligence Summit, in Chicago later this year.

“I look forward to continuing to develop the R-CISC’s capabilities and build solid peer-to-peer relationships within our community, with the government and in cross-sector relationships, to expand the real-time sharing of cyber threat intelligence and better protect the industry as a whole,” Squier said about her new role. Read more in Squier's recent post on the R-CISC blog.

Squier will carry on the R-CISC’s engagement and partnerships with leading academic institutions, industry trade associations, government, law enforcement and cross-sector sharing forums. She will actively engage private sector stakeholders and government agencies to facilitate information sharing and strengthen the retail industry’s capability and capacity to mitigate risk from cyber attacks.

The R-CISC is the trusted cybersecurity community for retailers. consumer product manufacturers, grocers, hotels, restaurants, and cybersecurity industry partners worldwide.
