As our technology and networking increases, cyber-based exploits and attacks continue to have global devastating physical and economic effects. General Keith Alexander, a retired four-star general, former head of NSA and first Commander of U.S. Cyber Command, discusses the rapid change in technology, examines the global state of affairs, what’s on the horizon, and provides insights to problems in our current network and design. Based on his experience in both the government and private sector, Alexander articulates a road map to bridge the gap between governments and private sector industries and how these two entities can work together to disrupt the adversary through information sharing.
A leader with vision and a pragmatic approach to tackling the ever-changing cyber threat landscape, Gen Alexander built IronNet to bring this knowledge and experience to the private sector and fill in a critical gap between cyber threats and available security technology. IronNet provides best-in-class cyber defense based on complex behavioral modeling, big-data analytics and advanced computing capability. Gen Alexander holds a BS from the US Military Academy, an MS in Business Administration from Boston University and MS degrees in Systems Technology, Physics and National Security Strategy.
