Our guest today is Bob Gourley, author of the book “The Cyber Threat: Know the Threat to Beat the Threat.” Earlier in his career, Bob spent 20 years as a U.S. Navy intelligence officer. One of his last assignments with the military was as director of intelligence for the first Department of Defense cyber defense organization. He’s currently a partner at Cognitio Corp, where he leads research and analysis activities, due diligence assessments, and strategic cybersecurity reviews for clients.

Bob sat down with us at our annual user conference at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. for a wide-ranging conversation on what it was like to define emerging cybersecurity missions for the Department of Defense, the importance of looking back to history as a guide, and the growing need for threat intelligence and basic cyber hygiene.
