Board of Advisors


The INSA Board of Advisors provides vision and direction for INSA activities and consists of a select group of individuals representing government, private sector and academia, who have served or currently serve at senior levels inside and outside of government. The Board of Advisors includes former senior government officials and senior private sector or industry leaders, all with extensive intelligence backgrounds. 

The breadth of experience among the current government officials includes service with the Department of Homeland Security, National Security Agency, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and Defense Intelligence Agency. The remainders of the Board of Advisors collectively bring vast private sector expertise; these individuals have had real-world experience in every national intelligence agency, and now serve as senior representatives for industry, the private sector, and academia.
