Internap CEO joins infrastructure council

President Bush has appointed the chief executive officer of Internap Network Services to serve on the National Infrastructure Advisory Council. The council advises the president on matters related to the security of critical infrastructure, those systems such as transportation, electricity and communications that are vital to the nation.

Gregory Peters, Internap's CEO, will join leaders of other companies including Cisco Systems, Symantec, Internet Security Systems, Akamai Technologies and Intel on the panel. It also includes members from government and academia.

"It is a privilege to have been selected to serve on the President's National Infrastructure Advisory Council," Peters wrote in a statement. "Advances in information technology have changed the way our economy and government is run and, at the same time, created new security challenges."

Internap provides Internet route management solutions to clients in the United States and other countries. Its government clients include the State, Defense and Justice departments, along with state governments in Pennsylvania and Delaware.
