Former FBI senior executive and CIO of the White House from 2002-2005, Carlos Solari is a writer with tremendous talent and experience. He has worked with communication systems since the early analog days, when access to the internet was reserved only for university research and defense. Earning the coveted Army Ranger tab himself, he learned the art of special operations and systems technologies, both of which he successfully applied to his government roles, as well those he later assumed in the private sector. Today, Carlos Solari continues to offer his expertise to the cybersecurity industry as both a professional and a storyteller.
