Sue Gordon

Sue Gordon, the former deputy director of U.S. national intelligence and a recognized cybersecurity expert, has joined our Board of Directors as an independent director.

MSNBC recently described Sue as “one of the most respected U.S. intelligence officers of her generation,” and she has been advising former U.S. Presidents since President Ronald Reagan. Her impressive government career includes over 40 years of service, particularly with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency where she led the CIA’s information operations center.

Sue is also a notable cybersecurity expert. At the CIA, she was the senior advisor on cyber issues, and while most recently serving as the principal deputy director of U.S. national intelligence until 2019, she was a member of the U.S. Cyberspace Solarium Commission, a bipartisan, U.S. congressionally mandated initiative. She is a senior fellow for Georgetown University’s Center for Security and Emerging Technology, which focuses on the security implications of emerging technologies.

Beyond her government and cybersecurity work, she is also a fellow with Duke and Harvard Universities, and serves on the boards of MITRE, CACI, Avantus, and BlackSky. She is an advisor to Microsoft, a contributor to CNBC, and an advisor to many companies.

She holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Duke University where she was a three-time captain of the Duke Women’s Basketball team. She is a highly sought-after commentator on global intelligence matters and U.S. national security, having recently been featured on MSNBC and in The New York Times.
