Richard Clarke joins SRA International as cybersecurity adviser

Former White House adviser Richard Clarke is joining SRA International, where he will serve as an executive adviser for cybersecurity and counterterrorism.

Clarke’s career spans 30 years in government, including working for the Defense Department, the State Department and the National Security Council. He served under presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush in various high-level positions related to intelligence, military, counterterrorism, national security, cybersecurity and internal affairs. Clarke is perhaps most well known for his criticism of the George W. Bush administration’s handling of counterterrorism and the Iraq war.

“In addition to his invaluable public service keeping our country safe and secure, Dick has an incomparable vantage point when it comes to national and homeland security,” said Bill Ballhaus, SRA International president and CEO, said in a press release. “His insights will be a key asset for SRA clients and further strengthen our cyber security and counterterrorism offerings.”

Clarke is a best-selling author who frequently writes about terrorism and security. He is a contributor for ABC News and teaches at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and is also chairman of Good Harbor Consulting.
