Ron’s acumen – developed and field proven as he successfully directed exceptionally complex situations and security challenges for the U.S. military, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence – will, we know, make him an invaluable member of Balabit’s Advisory Board.”
Moultrie was the first African-American in NSA’s history to lead its global operations and is also one of the Agency’s most decorated officers. Ron is currently the President and CEO of Oceanus Security Strategies, LLC, a consulting firm that works with clients to develop strategies for optimizing security and technology.
