Former CISO at the CIA

Robert Bigman is recognized as a pioneer in the field of classified information protection, as he developed technical measures and procedures to manage the nation’s most sensitive secrets. Bigman is an information security trailblazer and participated in developing security measures for government computers well before the commercial industry found the Internet. During his 30 years at the CIA, he worked on various cyber security assignments on policy, cryptography, and technology operations support, and was the agency CISO for the last 15 years.

Now an independent consultant, Bigman works with the U.S. Government, foreign governments, and Fortune 50 companies, helping them both build productive cyber security programs and successfully resist attacks from the most sophisticated hackers.
