Ron also leads our seasoned team of trusted advisors – world-renowned risk management leaders, cyber security strategists, and crisis communications executives – who provide clients with exceptional access and actionable insights on security issues, enterprise risk management and organizational governance structures.
While in government, Ron served in several of the U.S.’ most challenging national security assignments including as a member of CIA’s Senior Intelligence Service (SIS), the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), the United States military as a Russian Linguist, and as NSA’s Director of Operations. Ron was the first African American (and minority) in NSA’s history to lead its global operations and is also one of the Agency’s most decorated officers. Ron has represented the U.S. Government and private sector interests in the CIFIUS review process.
In 2018, Ron helped author the Navy’s Cybersecurity Readiness Review – both the classified and unclassified versions commissioned by the Secretary of the Navy.
