We’ve done that through our Security 2017 event and we will continue to work with our advisory board members to help clients address key issues that threaten our businesses and the way we live.”
“We are deeply honored to have Admiral Mullen, Commissioner Kelly, and Jim Rosenthal join our advisory board,” said Jules Kroll, chairman and co-founder of K2 Intelligence. “In this complex threat environment, it is so beneficial for our clients to have the access, attention, and perspectives from global leaders who have been very successful in managing incredibly difficult situations.
“Admiral Mullen is one of the most influential chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in our history. With more than 40 years of outstanding leadership and service to our country, we are very fortunate to learn from his exceptional insight on the intricacies of geopolitical relationships, counterterrorism and cyber threats.
