John Hinshaw Comments on Boeing’s New Md. Cybersecurity Center

John Hinshaw, Boeing

Boeing has opened a new facility in Annapolis Junction, Md., where company cybersecurity experts and R&D teams will address evolving cybersecurity threats for defense and commercial customers.

The company said the 32,000 square foot Cyber Engagement Center will house dynamic data analysis, information sharing, traffic intelligence, analytics and other capabilities.

“The risks to industry and government cybersecurity grow every second of every day,” said John Hinshaw, vice president and general manager of Boeing’s information solutions operations. “We’ve established this center to work collaboratively with our customers to help defend their critical infrastructure, as well as our own.”

Hinshaw said the center’s operations will be enhanced by Boeing’s recent acquisitions of data analysis and information-sharing firms eXMeritus and Kestrel. “Our recent acquisitions have enhanced our ability to deliver the full-spectrum, defense-in-depth solutions our customers need,” said Hinshaw.
