Location not specified

Join our virtual conversation on "Security in the Cyber Age" with Brig Gen (Ret) John Inglis, former Deputy Director of the National Security Agency. The recent cyber attack that exploited software developed by SolarWinds, a U.S. based company, is unprecedented. Nearly all Fortune 500 companies and federal agencies that used the affected software have been impacted. Defending from these attacks and others is an ever-present challenge. Mr. Inglis will discuss these challenges and doctrine for addressing them. Topics will cover business, government, and legal perspectives regarding implications of the U.S. Cyber Strategy, challenges of aligning security and privacy in a free and open society, and encouraging more responsibility from the private sector in national security." This event is co-hosted by the Mason School of Business, the Law School's Center for Legal & Court Technology, and the Whole of Government Center of Excellence.


Mr. Inglis currently serves as the current U. S. Naval Academy Looker Distinguished Visiting Professor for Cyber Studies. He retired from the Department of Defense in January 2014 after 41 years of federal service, including 28 years at NSA and seven and a half years as its Deputy Director. He is a managing director at Paladin Capital, a member of the U.S. Defense Science Board, a member of the Boards of FedEx and Huntington Bank, and a Commissioner on the U.S. Cyberspace Solarium Commission.

Mr. Inglis holds advanced degrees in engineering and computer science from Columbia University, Johns Hopkins University, and the George Washington University. Mr. Inglis’ military career includes 30 years of service in the US Air Force and Air National Guard -- from which he retired as a Brigadier General. He holds the rating of Command Pilot.
