Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 18, 2015
Michael McMahon has joined Innovative Analytics and Training, LLC (IAT) to manage and expand the organization’s Cyber Strategy and Analysis practice. Mr. McMahon draws on extensive experience as a top U.S. government analyst on cyber threats and cyber security, as well as the importance of creating deliberate strategies for dealing with them.
Most recently, Michael served as the Deputy National Intelligence Officer for Cyber, where he specialized in threat analysis, cyber threats to critical infrastructure systems, and global Internet governance. He leverages over six years of IAT engagements with government and commercial clients on analytic strategies for understanding developments in cyberspace and mitigating them through cross-sector approaches. Michael will be focused on expanding the practice in light of recent national initiatives to improve information sharing between government and the private sector.
As a career Defense Department intelligence officer, he held senior analytic positions in several production offices dedicated to cyber threat analysis, strategic C4I systems, and intelligence support to information operations. His dedication to analytic tradecraft and structured analytic techniques helped prepare a generation of young analysts for careers in intelligence. A former Naval officer, Mike held shore assignments with the Joint Chiefs of Staff and NCIS, and overseas assignments in the Persian Gulf and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
“Michael is an exceptional candidate to grow IAT’s Cyber Strategy and Analysis practice” said Chief Executive Kevin O’Connell. “His deep analytic expertise on cyber, his thorough understanding of government and industry sectors and his high-level policy support experience will serve senior executives well in developing an understanding of cyber threats and strategies for remediation.” Recent developments demonstrate the critical importance of anticipating and planning for cyber challenges, whether in Fortune 500 boardrooms or in U.S. government agencies.
