About Ira Winkler
Ira is considered one of the world’s most influential security professionals and was named “The Awareness Crusader” by CSO magazine in receiving their CSO COMPASS Award and a “Modern Day James Bond” by the media. He did this by performing espionage simulations, where he physically and technically “broke into” some of the largest companies in the World and investigated crimes against them, and told them how to cost-effectively protect their information and computer infrastructure. In 2022, he was named Top Cybersecurity Leader by Security Magazine. Ira has designed, implemented, and supported security awareness programs at organizations of all sizes, in all industries, and around the world. He continues to perform these espionage simulations, as well as assist organizations in developing cost-effective security programs. Winkler began his career at the National Security Agency, where he served as an Intelligence and Computer Systems Analyst. He moved onto support other US and overseas government military and intelligence agencies. After leaving government service, he went on to serve as President of the Internet Security Advisors Group, Chief Security Strategist at HP Consulting, and Director of Technology of the National Computer Security Association. He was also on the Graduate and Undergraduate faculties of the Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland. Ira has also won the Hall of Fame award from the Information Systems Security Association, as well as several other prestigious industry awards.
In the midst of disruption across all industries, our members are given the tools they need to digitally transform their organizations.
