About the Author
His ideas on cyber topics have been widely published in over a hundred articles and essays published by the Atlantic Council, National Research Council; academic journals such as from Brown and Georgetown Universities; the Aspen Strategy Group and other think tanks. Jason is also a board member (and former executive director) of the Cyber Conflict Studies Association and lecturer in cyber policy at Georgetown University.
Jason has unique experience working issues of cyber conflict and security spanning fifteen years across the public and private sectors. As Director for Cyber Infrastructure Protection at the White House from 2003 to 2005, he helped advise the President and coordinated US efforts to secure US cyberspace and critical infrastructure. He has worked twice for Goldman Sachs, first to anchor their team for responding to cyber attacks and later, as an executive director in Hong Kong to manage Asia-wide business continuity and create the bank's regional crisis management capabilities to respond to earthquakes, tsunamis, or terrorist attacks. Immediately after the 9/11 attacks, his efforts as vice chairman of the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center created bonds between the finance sector and government that remain strong today.
