A four-star Army general who led the National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command, General Keith B. Alexander played a pivotal role in securing the United States and our Allies for the past decade.
As a proven innovator with decades of experience safeguarding national interests, General Keith Alexander provides strategic vision to corporate leaders looking to apply his battlefield-tested approaches to boardroom challenges. One of the most strategic thinkers in recent U.S. history and an indomitable force in the critical domain of cyber security, Alexander lends his expertise today to Fortune Top Ten brands in the energy, financial and technology spaces to overcome the acute difficulties of the current security landscape. From protecting complex financial systems from compromise, to thwarting hackers from gaining access to valuable intellectual property, Alexander’s expertise is increasingly crucial to the success of major brands, government entities, and more.
A four-star Army general, Alexander became head of the National Security Agency (NSA) and Central Security Service (CSS) in 2005, a pivotal time-period for American security. While in office, his efforts resulted in some of the most forward-thinking measures related to the production and management of intelligence for the U.S. government. When the vulnerability of an increasingly networked world became more apparent in 2010, Alexander was nominated under President Barack Obama and Defense Secretary Robert Gates as first commander of U.S. Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM), a military institution integral to the nation’s security and prosperity. A visionary commended for his steadfast leadership, Alexander examines the nation’s current state of affairs, what’s on the horizon, and offers solutions for remaining agile and staying ahead of the threat to secure a prosperous future for generations to come. General Alexander was also a member of the 2016 Presidential Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity. He also met with President Trump to discuss the emerging Cybersecurity Executive Order.
