Jason Smolanoff, a former CEO of CISO Advisory & Investigations and a 12-year FBI veteran, has been appointed senior managing director at Kroll and leader of the company’s global cyber security practice.
Kroll said Tuesday the more than 16-year federal law enforcement and information security veteran previously supervised investigations of various sophisticated computer and network intrusions by state-sponsored organized crime, hacktivists and insider threat actors.
“Jason is an extraordinary talent and globally recognized expert on the evolving cyber threats that enterprises, individuals and governments increasingly face on a near-daily basis,” said Kroll CEO David Fontaine.
“In joining Kroll, he adds yet another element to our growing and accomplished team of cyber professionals.”
Smolanoff primarily worked through the FBI’s the Los Angeles field office from 2000 to 2011 and held positions at Stroz Friedberg and Tokyo Electron.
“Now, more than ever, it is essential to anticipate, to plan, and to attain an organizational state of readiness that will enable any adverse impacts of a cyber incident to be reduced to a minimum,” said Smolanoff.
He also serves as commissioner of the Highland, California-based San Manuel Gaming Commission.
