With an extraordinary record and breadth of public service, success and experience, Tom Ridge has become one of the most respected and top international security experts in the world.
A much-decorated Vietnam veteran, former governor, Cabinet official and international statesman, Tom Ridge understands the growing global threats of today—including how a cyber attack could severely threaten the security and economy of the United States and its allies in the future. As the U.S.’s first homeland security chief, Ridge was tasked with leading the extraordinary effort of making America more secure in the wake of the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil—September 11, 2001. His unprecedented successes include developing a unified national response and recovery plan, instituting sweeping air, land and seaport security strategies and improving information sharing worldwide, while simultaneously driving the largest change management initiative of all time—quickly integrating 180,000 people from nearly two dozen agencies and creating a culture of change within the new department. With today’s climate of cyber threats posing an increased vulnerability risk to individuals, businesses and national security—and rampant identity theft, computer crime and cyber espionage on the rise—Ridge offers audiences key strategies for businesses and governments to create awareness, assess threats, mitigate risk and improve information sharing between public and private sectors to ensure success in an uncertain world. The author of The Test of Our Times: America Under Siege…And How We Can Be Safe Again, Ridge chairs the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s National Security Task Force.
