The former head of the National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command, retired Navy Adm. Mike Rogers, has been named the chairman of the board of advisers for cybersecurity firm Claroty.
Rogers retired from the Navy last year after a 37-year career, including four years as the head of Cyber Command.
As chairman of Claroty’s board of advisers, Rogers will lead a group of business and security leaders providing guidance and counsel to the company and its customers on emerging cybersecurity trends and requirements, the company said.
“It’s both humbling and a great source of pride that Admiral Rogers chose to join our mission of protecting industrial networks from the most sophisticated cyberthreats,” said Amir Zilberstein, co-founder and CEO of Claroty. “His combination of operational experience, executive management and leadership in the cybersecurity field is unrivaled, and he will be a tremendous asset to both our team and our customers.”
In a statement, Rogers said:
“Owners of critical infrastructure in the U.S. and abroad face a deluge of sophisticated cyberthreats to their operations. Claroty understands these threats better than anyone in the industry and this superior understanding is reflected in the performance and broad adoption of their technology. I look forward to working with Claroty and their customers on the vitally important mission of protecting our critical infrastructure in our digital and hyperconnected age.”
