Federal 100: Ron Ross

Title: Computer Scientist, Fellow

Master of risk management. Ross is the mastermind behind the newest version of the Risk Management Framework.

His colleagues say Ross played an essential role in helping to create a strategic approach to risk management and taking NIST’s cybersecurity guidance to the next level.
