The Information Security Service

The Information Security Service (tISS) of the Corporate IT Forum was established in 2002 by a group of security officers from within the trusted subscriber base of large corporate organisations. They felt that a collaborative approach to prevention and management was essential.


The strictly-controlled membership consists of hundreds of security professionals. They share information and collaborate on best practice across the entire spectrum of risk and security issues conducted in a confidential and trusted environment. The service is free from vendor influence, consultants and analysts ensuring the complete integrity of the intelligence within the knowledge base.


The service has a wide range of facilitated workshops, brokered discussions, flash reports, secure Q&As, a web-based knowledge centre and a confidential contacts directory of peers from large organisations.

Member organisations keep ahead of the game, achieve more from their budgets, and learn from each other in developing robust, effective security policies.

The agenda is set by the Security Leadership Team ensuring significant topics are dealt with in a timely manner while addressing strategic issues on a continuing basis.

The Security Leadership team is led by Neil Jarvis, Head of Information Security and IT Risk at DHL Supply Chain.

With over 20 years' experience in both commercial and government information systems security, Neil has a proven track record in the specification, design and implementation of complex IT and security infrastructure solutions to meet business requirements.

Neil's experience has provided him with expertise in network infrastructure, server infrastructure, operating systems security, application security, information security, penetration testing, disaster recovery, business continuity, business requirements gathering, analysis, interpretation and delivery of pragmatic cost effective solutions.

Information Security is central to the effective governance of all major organisations whether in the public or private sector. Membership of the largest, vendor independent security service will not only ensure your organisation is in-line with current best practice but will enhance its ability to keep ahead of persistent, evolving threats in the future.
