Secretary Ray Mabus Joins Anomali Advisory Board

March 29, 2018 | Dan Barahona

We’re thrilled to announce that former Secretary of the U.S. Navy, Ray Mabus, will be the newest advisory board member at Anomali. Secretary Mabus has had a remarkable career, serving as the 60th Governor of Mississippi from 1988 to 1992 and the United States Ambassador to Saudi Arabia from 1994 until 1996. He was also called upon by former President Barack Obama to serve as Secretary of the United States Navy between 2009 and 2017, the longest to hold the position since WWI.

Throughout his career Secretary Mabus has driven radical change, whether it be adopting renewable in the Navy or purging fraud from state and local government. His dedication to driving change and decades of experience will make him an invaluable advisor to Anomali.

“Traditionally we have considered land, sea, air and space as the four theaters of war. Cyberspace is now clearly a very real venue for attacks, and the threats are more complex and destructive than ever before,” said Secretary Ray Mabus. "In returning to the private sector I want to help bridge the gap between the technology community and government. I was impressed by Anomali and the company's vision and leadership in driving threat sharing and collaboration across industries, and the private and public sectors. It's only by working together and sharing information securely and efficiently that we will equip our country with the tools it needs to defend itself."   

We look forward to working closely with Secretary Mabus to help further our initiatives to leverage threat intelligence to prevent and respond to attacks, drive threat sharing and collaboration in public and private sector, and ultimately help organizations to protect themselves.
