“Cybereason is one of the hottest cybersecurity companies in the world and I’m looking forward to being part of an impressive group of industry stalwarts and visionaries on their advisory board. It's no coincidence that Cybereason’s meteoric rise is coming at a time when more and more targeted, state-sponsors actors are carrying out sophisticated attacks against the global 1,000 companies and software and services needed to combat risks are offered by the company,” said Kris.
Kris is the recipient of numerous awards and medals, including the National Intelligence Superior Service Medal, the Office of the Secretary of Defense Medal for Exceptional Public Service, the CIA Agency Seal Medal, the Department of Justice Edmund J.
