Interview: Get The Inside Scoop on Gameover Zeus
On August 11th, I’ll be interviewing former NSA Agent Summer Worden – who has been collaborating with investigators on this major crime break over the past several months. Summer Worden is the founder and chief executive director of Filly Intelligence LLC, an advisory firm focused on applying an intelligence-based approach to secure enterprise vulnerabilities using military cyber and intelligence best practices. Ms. Worden is a 13-year veteran of the U.S. military and Intelligence Community (IC). During this time she served as an operational intelligence officer in a variety of leadership roles; her positions held within the IC were served at both the field level and at the heartbeat of our nation’s highest authority for strategic national intelligence. Her strong competencies within sensitive intelligence operations were recognized when she was selected to lead one of the five operational teams of the National Security Agency (NSA). These five teams serve as a direct asset of the Director of the NSA, and their mission delivers 24-7 national support for critical events and clandestine operations across the globe.
