Seeking the Security Flaws in Booming Technologies

By Dr. Stacey Dixon

Deputy Director, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA)

Dr. Stacey Dixon took over as Director of the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA)  in September of last year.  Her specific task is to advance innovative research programs that will help the Government gain an advantage in the overall intelligence mission.  No small task.

Dr. Dixon is also a featured speaker at The Cipher Brief’s 2019 Threat Conference and we spoke with her in a pre-conference brief, about the challenges of leading the way toward investment in high-risk/high-payoff research programs.

“The Cipher Brief has become the most popular outlet for former intelligence officers; no media outlet is even a close second to The Cipher Brief in terms of the number of articles published by formers.” —Sept. 2018, Studies in Intelligence, Vol. 62
