Sophos chief joins Internet Society board

The Internet Society of Australia (ISOC-AU) has appointed Sophos Asia Pacific managing director, Rob Forsyth, to its board of director for 2010.

Forsyth joins the ISOC board while still retaining his current role with Sophos and as the deputy chairman for the Internet Industry Association (IIA). 

Prior to this new appointment, Forsyth was employed by the Sydney Organising Committee for the Olympic Games and during the 90’s he was a member of the NSW Branch executive committee of the Australia Computer Society.

The non-profit ISOC-AU promotes the development of the Internet in Australia’s business, academic, professional and private communities, as well as providing technical advice on Internet public policy for its 40,000-plus members.
According to Forsyth, he has joined the ISOC-AU in the hope of “contributing to the positive transformation of the Internet as the technology becomes the mainstay of most aspects of both business and personal communications.”

“As technology develops at a rapid pace, the Internet is undoubtedly continuing to change the way we operate as individuals – and society will evolve in exciting ways as a consequence.  Joining the ISOC-AU is a great way to be involved in creating beneficial policies and emerging governance that will improve online security and safety for all internet users.
“This is also a good opportunity to raise broad community awareness of the security risks and potential crimes among our local communities.  In particular, both extremes of our community are vulnerable; the young and those more recently exposed to technology for the first time.  Australia has the potential to lead the world’s best practice in online security and safety.”
