Cyber-Security Heavyweights to Sell Their Expertise
Richard Clarke, John Tritak and Roger Cressey form Good Harbor Consulting, which will advise clients on homeland security, cyber-security, counterterrorism and infrastructure protection issues.A large portion of the cyber-security talent that has drained out of the federal government in the last few months has reassembled in a new consulting firm. Richard Clarke, John Tritak and Roger Cressey have joined together to found Good Harbor Consulting LLC, which will advise clients on homeland security, cyber-security, counterterrorism and infrastructure protection issues. All three men have extensive backgrounds in government service, and all three recently left Washington looking for greener pastures. The trio is planning a press conference next Tuesday, at which a spokeswoman promises they will make some of "their strongest statements yet" about the nations cyber-security posture.
Clarke, most recently the chairman of the Presidents Critical Infrastructure Protection Board, has held a variety of high-level government posts during the past 15 years. In addition to working at the State Department and the Pentagon, Clarke has served as the White Houses top counterterrorism official.
