Hello, Guest!

EM Logo5Executive spotlights are in-depth Q&A’s which ExecutiveBiz conducts with numerous chief and top-level executives in GovCon.
The intimate access afforded by these interviews provides insight as to how companies are acquiring new business, what the future holds and the personal side of corporate leaders.
This past week, ExecutiveBiz published a spotlight with Tina Kuhn, Northrop Grumman vice president of the Security and Information Operations business unit under the Cyber Intelligence division.
Kuhn spoke on many topics during the conversation including how to lead a geographically diverse workforce, international expansion and the company’s cybersecurity offerings.
She spoke to ExecutiveBiz about what countries the company is looking to expand its presence in.
“We are primarily targeting the United Kingdom (UK), Australia, Japan, South Korea, United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia.  We are developing a cyber operations center and computer network defense for NATO” she said.
Kuhn said she uses teleconferencing, video teleconferencing and web-based meetings, in addition to face-to-face meetings to communicate with employees.
“Our biometric research team is in four different states, including engineers in Ohio, West Virginia, Massachusetts, and Virginia all working on the same project. We set up these virtual engineering teams to better collaborate across the country,” she said.
She also spoke about the the relationship between industry and government when it comes to cybersecurity.
“The complexity and prevalence of the cyber threat means that no organization can solve this on their own, thus strong industry-government partnerships are critical,” she said.
Executive Mosaic’s portfolio of more than five media platforms serves to inform executives from across GovCon and the defense sector of the events, people and companies that shape their industry.
ExecutiveBiz is one of EM’s premiere websites and focuses on the news that executives need to know, including alerts on new contracts and industry reports, to conduct and acquire new business.
