Cybersecurity | Leadership | Crisis

Keynote Speaker, Writer, & Consultant

It seems I was born to public speak and deliver keynote speeches. It is something I love doing and I have a fascinating, engaging story that your board, executive team, employees, or your conference and event attendees will be enamored with, entertained, and walk away with actionable lessons they can apply in their organization or even their personal life.


You see, I was Edward Snowden's boss and was intimately involved in the crisis of his disappearance and subsequent NSA data leaks. I walk you through my story with Snowden and we discuss lessons we learn from my experience.


Not only that, but I am a cybersecurity, business, and military veteran.  I have seen inside of some of our nations most critical data breaches, performed incident response for global financial firms, designed and built information security programs for Fortune 500 companies, served as a Chief Information Security Officer, and most significantly am a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy Reserve.  These unique experiences lend to a message and presentation that will not soon be forgotten and will have a significant impact on you and your participants.

Edward Snowden was the man behind one of the USA's largest and most impactful data leaks. He is a controversial figure across the globe. I served as his manager at the time of his disappearance. Hear my inside story and the professional and personal lessons we can learn.

As a highly experienced cybersecurity professional and having worked across the public and private sectors and performed intelligence, IR, and CISO roles, I have a unique view of cyber domain and expert knowledge of the global cyber threats.

Edward Snowden is the poster child of the insider threat, but not all insiders have malicous intent. The threat is every employee you have from your trusted to departing to disgruntled. Such threats pose a data loss, financial, physical, and reputational risk. 

My worst day was June 9th, 2013; the day Edward Snowden revealed himself to the world as the man behind the NSA leaks. The lessons I learned from this experience and via a career of engaging in and studying data breaches, insider threats, and other crises are invaluable.
