Experience includes National Level Cyber Review for the White House, Extensive Work in Developing Strategy
Reinforcing its focus and attention on cyber security issues, the Potomac Institute welcomes Melissa Hathaway, former acting senior director for cyberspace at the National Security Council, to its Board of Regents.
Melissa Hathaway is at Harvard Kennedy School's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs as a senior advisor to its cyber security initiative, Project Minerva, a joint effort between the Department of Defense, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Harvard University.
Mike Swetnam, CEO and Chairman of Potomac Institute, highlighted the key insight and skill she brings to the think tank in cyber security and cyber space issues.
“Not one day goes by where we don’t hear about the serious policy and security issues resulting from cyber matters: activities, intrusions, capabilities, and more,” Swetnam said. “Melissa gets that big picture and can help us explore even further the range of policy issues and recommendations. This will help us connect our research and strategy in a more significant way.”
