I am very pleased Mr. Hyde agreed to join to my growing Board of Advisors. His decades of experience in the defense and intelligence community, plus his interest in cyber, access control and technical innovation make him a perfect fit. Mr. Hyde previously worked at the Defense Department as deputy undersecretary for intelligence and security and held numerous senior executive roles at an IC agency. He currently serves as executive director of the University of Alabama Cyber Initiative. In addition to numerous other achievements, Mr. Hyde was awarded the Distinguished Career Intelligence Medal from CIA Director John Brennan in December 2013 and the Secretary of Defense Medal for Meritorious Civilian Service in March 2013.
