The Patuxent Partnership invites its members, the business community, DoD and the public to a special presentation, "Cyber Threats – A National Perspective," with VADM Mike McConnell, USN (ret) on Monday, March 21, at the new Patuxent River Naval Air Museum, beginning at 5 p.m.
McConnell's career has spanned over 40 years focused on international development and foreign intelligence issues. His 29-year distinguished career as a US Navy intelligence officer included significant assignments that impacted national security issues.
After retiring from the Navy in 1996 as a Vice Admiral, Mr. McConnell joined Booz Allen, and led the development of the firm's Information Assurance business and the firm's Intelligence business focused on policy, transformation, homeland security, and intelligence analytics, rising to the position of senior vice president.
Upon being asked by President George W. Bush in 2007 to become the second Director of National Intelligence, he left Booz Allen and served as the DNI for two years under Presidents Bush and Obama.
The cost to attend this program is $15 and advance registration is required at http://paxpartnership.org/
