The Leadership Series: SR-71, Insider Threat & Snowden

Breakthrough Ideas for June 2013

At the core of the success of both the Northrop Grumman  B-2 Spirit and the Lockheed  SR-71

Blackbird Program  (detailed below), as well as innumerable NASA  Missions,  is a fundamental

non-negotiable Leadership, Project Management and Recruitment caveat. If serious about the

the success,  survival—including competitive advantage & security—of your business, country

or mission, then hire ONLY highly disciplined, highly competent, and well vetted strategy &

security-minded professionals. Security is not all about Privacy. Nor does fanaticism about

the latter and conspiracy theory help. Deeply enshrined in Intellectual Property Law say,

are nebulous disciplines, such as Trade Secret Law, directly connected to Security for a

reason. I trust and in most cases support the work of the ACLU and EFF. But as I told

a security professional vis-à-vis Edward Snowden's legal/asylum problems, I am not

concerned. One cannot competently discuss, honor, or protect Trade Secret say;

& mission Critical Data Protection without appreciating the magnitude of what

security professionals term The Insider Threat. Or CINDER, in cyber cases. It

is bad enough that he did not complete high school; obviously doesn't care

about why there's such a thing as Security & Top Security Clearance; why

we need CI (or Counterintelligence), and importantly: why it's humble

in the current job economy, to pause, and ponder the plight of much

better qualified security professionals when taking a job as he was

contracted by Booz Allen Hamilton to do. I was a consultant for

most of my IT years, and good judgment, ethics and a strong

aversion to breach of trust, without which businesses, like

national security apparatuses, may as well handover their

OPSEC & all sensitive data, directly to competitors and

adversaries, prevented me from being stupid enough

to take a job, with the express goal of “gathering

evidence on NSA surveillance”. This is the same

nation—my country—whose electorate skipped

the more circumspect and visionary Al Gore

for that we'd be entangled

unnecessarily in Iraq, our economy all

but decimated by obstructionists &

self-inflicted wounds. Of course,

Mr. Snowden appreciates all of

that. Plus, Frank Herbert's tru

-ism that Humans live best

when each has his place,

& knows where he be-

longs in the scheme

of things. That's

why he confuses

the NSA with

Enron & co.
