In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA 2020, Alexander also discusses:

  • IronNet’s latest threat research and predictions;
  • The latest manifestations of nation-state threats;
  • The state of election cybersecurity.

As the founder, chairman, Co-CEO and president at IronNet Cybersecurity, Alexander provides strategic vision to corporate leaders on cybersecurity issues through development of cutting-edge technology, consulting and education/training. The retired four-star general had a 40-year military career, culminating as director of the National Security Agency and chief of the Central Security Service.
