Ron Moultrie Receives Navy’s Highest Civilian Honor
Resolute Strategic Service’s (RSS) Founder and Advisor Board Chair Ron Moultrie has been recognized by Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer with the Navy Distinguished Civilian Service Award.
Ron, a former senior national security official who retired as the Director of Operations of the National Security Agency (NSA), was recognized for his role in a Cybersecurity Readiness Review for the Secretary of the Navy. The review examined cybersecurity at the governance layer and identified five critical pillars key to cybersecurity readiness: culture, people, structure, processes and resources.
“To be recognized by Secretary Spencer with the Navy Distinguished Civilian Service Award is a tremendous honor,” said Ron Moultrie. “Having the opportunity to play an integral role in enhancing the U.S. Navy’s, and by extension the Defense Department’s, cybersecurity posture and future strategy was extremely rewarding.”
“This distinguished honor underscores the high level of integrity and expertise Ron brings to every engagement – whether it is for the U.S. Navy or one of Resolute’s clients,” said Greg Goldner, RSS Founder and Managing Partner. “Ron continues to be sought after for his extraordinary knowledge of cybersecurity intelligence and his unique ability to translate that into actionable cybersecurity readiness planning. We are so proud that Ron was recognized with this award and honored to have him as a senior advisor to our firm.”
At RSS, Ron stewards companies as they work toward a more strategic, holistic approach to digitalization. He will lead a team of trusted advisors who have worked on the most challenging international and domestic high-stakes security assignments in the world.
The Navy Distinguished Civilian Service Award is the highest honor the Secretary can confer upon a civilian employee. It is granted only to those who have given distinguished or extraordinary service to the Department of the Navy and is reserved for contributions that are so unusual or significant that recognition at the Secretary of the Navy level is deserved.
