Recent Activity  -


Twenty five great years serving our country, much of it applying national intelligence to support military operations in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and throughout the Cold War. Great opportunities to command units from detachment to division and center. My thanks to great mentors along the way like Major John Lynch and LtCol Dick Lees. Transitioned to industry and the cyber world. As Chief Cyber Services Strategist for General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity, Jim is responsible for developing and evolving the company's cyber services strategy while synchronizing it with product strategy. Jim previously managed the Network Defense and Forensics business area at General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions, including the Digital Forensics Lab. In this role, he led cyber forensics investigations into the largest breaches.
