Vice President, Global Finance

Finance & Accounting McLean, Virginia United States


Description

What’s your mission?

IronNet’s mission is simple:  To deliver the power of collective cybersecurity to defend companies, sectors, and nations.  For decades, companies have been defending against cyber attacks on their own while adversaries have been organizing themselves into sophisticated hacker networks … until now, with IronNet Collective Defense.  In 2014, General (Ret) Keith Alexander, former Commander U.S. Cyber Command, launched IronNet to strengthen cybersecurity defense against highly sophisticated adversaries, across all borders and sectors.   

In response to cyber adversaries who increasingly collaborate for collective offense, leading organizations in our critical infrastructure are using collective defense strategies and solutions to meet these powerful and ever-changing threats.  We believe that collective defense is our collective responsibility and we are leading the charge.
