2016 Fed 100

Federal 100: Kevin Mandia

Name: Kevin Mandia
Title: President
Company: FireEye

The cyber seer. A former Air Force officer, Mandia has long had a knack for knowing where cybersecurity is headed next. After stints as a computer security officer and cybercrime investigator in the service, he moved to the private sector and in 2004 founded Mandiant, which was acquired by FireEye a decade later. At both firms, Mandia effectively changed the way the government responds to cyberattacks -- even developing training curricula tailored to key security agencies. In 2015, he continued to shape the debate on everything from encryption backdoors to what the Sony hack portends for attacks in 2016 and beyond.
