We specialize in building teams and programs that can respond to today’s cyber and information threats. In 2017, we worked with agencies and officials in the Swedish, Kosovar, and Serbian governments to further their respective programs and security objectives. In 2018, we’re engaged with several European governments to implement cybersecurity strategies, develop institutional capacity and information sharing practices, advise on security operations centers and intelligence methodologies, and more. We frequently work with the US Agency for International Development and US Department of State and multiple private sector partners to complement their strategic security initiatives. Our network of leading international cybersecurity professionals and intelligence analysts gives us the ability to take on projects that span multiple security disciplines—from network defense to finished analytic products and white papers.

Her audiences range from heads of government to rural church congregations, manufacturing consortiums to international journalists—and just about every vertical, geography and age group in between. She is an energetic speaker who seeks to make the dynamics of cyberspace accessible and leave her audiences with a renewed sense of agency and purpose.
