Former Senior Scientist of CIA joins NISC

National Interest Security Company : 01 June, 2009  (Company News)
Advanced information solutions specialist to focus on visualisation, cyber security and data forensics initiatives at NISC
National Interest Security Company (NISC) has announced that Dr Les Dreiling, former technical advisor to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) National Clandestine Service (NCS), has joined NISC as Chief Scientist of NISC Advanced Information Solutions.

Dr Dreiling's main responsibilities will focus on advanced, next-generation media forensics, cybersecurity, and large-scale analytical visualization initiatives. He will be working with senior leadership at NISC to create and promulgate a set of software development and software engineering best practices that are reflective of his many years of experience running successful projects at the CIA. Dr Dreiling joins other distinguished leaders from the intelligence community at NISC, including General Michael Hayden, former Director of the CIA; Dr Donald Kerr, former Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence; and Jose Rodriguez, former Director of the CIA NCS.

Dr Dreiling recently retired from the CIA with 29 years experience in the design, development, and implementation of innovative, scalable data processing, exploitation, and analysis solutions for both the CIA and the Intelligence Community. As a Senior Scientist and CIA "Trailblazer", he served as Technical Advisor to the NCS Associate Deputy Director for Technology, as Chief Scientist in the NCS/Information Operations Centre, and as Chief of an R&D unit engaged in creative problem finding, shaping, and solving. Dr Dreiling was awarded the National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal (2006) and is the only staff officer twice-awarded the 'CIA Scientist of the Year' (1992, 2002). He holds a PhD in astrophysics from the University of Maryland.

Andrew Maner, Chief Executive Officer of NISC, said, "Dr Dreiling brings a brilliantly creative and scientific approach to solving technical problems and an intimate knowledge of our customer mission space and business processes. He will be leading a number of Internal Research and Development (IR&D) initiatives across NISC, providing technical and subject matter expertise to many of our current and pending programs. We are honored to have him on our team."

Patrick Crago, Executive Vice President of NISC Information Solutions, adds, "Dr Dreiling is among the most respected and talented experts in the Intelligence Community. I look forward to working with him and am pleased that he is joining the NISC team. Together, we offer NISC's customers unsurpassed expertise in helping to solve our nation's most critical challenges."
