Summit 7 hires defense industry specialist as vice president

HUNTSVILLE – Summit 7 has named Joy Beland its vice president of Partner Strategy and Cybersecurity Education, a newly created position.

She will be responsible for driving Summit 7’s business partnerships and strategically developing the next phase of the company’s partner ecosystem, according to a news release from the Huntsville cybersecurity and compliance contractor. Additionally, Beland will lead and oversee Summit 7’s cybersecurity education programs.

“We have watched Joy deliver technical expertise and training to the CMMC ecosystem in light of the shifting CMMC timelines,” said Scott Edwards, CEO of Summit 7. “Her ability to clearly articulate how DoD contractors should and should not be pursuing security and compliance measures inherently compliment the nature of Summit 7’s strategy: maintaining our position as the first line of defense for the DIB.”

Beland served as senior cybersecurity consultant and professional instructor at Edwards Performance Solutions. She oversaw training for the Cyber-AB-Approved CCP and CCA certification courses as a provisional instructor.

“I have seen Summit 7 deliver sound and accurate expertise to the DoD supply chain for years and am ecstatic at the opportunity to continue the mission here,” said Beland. “I look forward to establishing a relational partner ecosystem for both Summit 7 and our current and future partners. It is an honor to join the Summit 7 family.”

Considered a cybersecurity expert, Beland has held full-day boot camps on cybersecurity fundamentals.
