Can you talk a little bit about your military service? What was that experience like?

So I started serving in 1993. I was stationed in the Pentagon. I was a second lieutenant. My first job ever was really four months after I entered the Pentagon, we started monitoring what's called TCP/IP traffic at the Pentagon. So I grew up, from 1993 until now, in cybersecurity. I don't know what we called it back then, but we started monitoring [for bad actors] back then. I would say at the time less than 5 percent of military traffic was TCP/IP, but obviously at this point it's probably the vast majority.

But that was really the beginning of security monitoring. And by 1993, the FBI started the National Computer Crime Squad in D.C. And where it really took off: By 1995. I'm responding to breaches as an investigator in the Air Force and almost every breach into our military would go back to Russia or China. And it still took me 18 years to realize most of the breaches I responded to were a reflection of geopolitical conditions.
