iJET forms Transportation Board

20th Sep 2006

iJET Intelligent Risk Systems is forming its Transportation Intelligence Board (TIB). The TIB
will offer strategic advice and expertise around iJET’s initiatives to
strengthen supply-chain resiliency and protect corporate assets against
threats to all modes of transportation.

Disasters, globalization and unstable operating strategies have made
corporate supply-chain networks more vulnerable than ever before. To
address this rising threat, iJET has established its Transportation
Intelligence Board to identify trends relevant to the international
trade environment and to offer consultation around iJET’s risk
management services. Utilizing iJET’s award-winning Worldcue(r)
technology and open source intelligence, clients can keep abreast of
transportation and supply-chain threats around the world, 24x7. 

The TIB becomes the company’s third advisory board, following the
Security Intelligence Board and Health Intelligence Board. Andrew
Chester, iJET’s Vice President of Global Intelligence Services, will
lead the TIB as chairman. Captain David M. Swain, Hank DeGeneste and
Luke Ritter (see biographical information below) will also sit on the
board.  Combined, the TIB members bring to iJET’s advisory team more
than a century of diverse experience in NATO programs, naval
intelligence, transportation consulting, law enforcement and risk

“For more than six years, iJET has been tracking and managing risks to
corporate assets. In terms of business continuity, a company’s supply
chain is as vital as its people and facilities,” said Chester. “iJET is
working hard to ensure that clients’ fixed and mobile assets,
transportation channels and critical suppliers are all equally
protected. I look forward to working with such an elite group to shape
iJET’s supply chain risk management services.” 

Chester spent more than 20 years of his career in Canadian naval
intelligence and developed and directed the Open Source Intelligence
(OSINT) Initiative for the NATO Alliance. Chester was also the principal
architect of the Canadian Maritime Network, a command and control system
that coordinated all Canadian federal maritime surveillance efforts.
