As the Air Force’s top cyber leader, he drove several critical initiatives in 2018, including the AFCYBER Insider Threat Program, the 33rd Network Warfare Squadron’s embrace of agile defensive cyberspace operations, and a series of groundbreaking cyber hunt missions across the U.S. military’s logistics and airpower bases in South Korea.
