Top CIA analyst to discuss cybersecurity threats April 6 at BYU

Mark Henshaw, a senior analyst for the CIA, will be speaking at Brigham Young University Tuesday, April 6, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

His lecture will be titled “Current Cybersecurity Threats to the United States.” The lecture will be open to the public. It is sponsored by the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies and will be archived online at kennedy.byu.edu.

A graduate of BYU, Henshaw has spent the past 10 years studying cyber threats to U.S. national security. He is an expert in usage of information technology by terrorists, organized criminals and hackers.

Henshaw founded the CIA’s “Silent Horizon” war-gaming series. The program ran a series of mock-cyberwargames to test the government’s ability to withstand Internet disruptions and attacks. The findings were given to the White House, National Security Council, Departments of State, Treasury, Defense and Energy.

He is the recipient of 15 CIA performance awards and the Director of National Intelligence’s Galileo Award for Innovation in Intelligence for his paper “A National Security Simulations Center.”
