Val LeTellier ran security, intelligence, and counterintelligence operations as a State Department Diplomatic Security Special Agent and CIA operations officer. Twenty years penetrating foreign intelligence targets and recruiting sources provided him an intimate understanding of the psychology of insiders. Following government service, he co-founded a cyber security firm that combined CIA HUMINT and NSA technical expertise for insider risk vulnerability assessment and countermeasure design. He now creates next generation tradecraft solutions for the IC. He is a member of the INSA Insider Threat Subcommittee, presents nationally on insider risk, and holds an MS, MBA, CISSP, CEH, PMP and ITVA.
