James Clapper, a retired U.S. Air Force lieutenant general and a former director of national intelligence, has been named to LookingGlass Cyber Solutions' advisory board.

LookingGlass CEO Gilman Louie said in a statement published Tuesday Clapper will provide input as the company works to help its customers mitigate cyber threats using products capable of operationalizing threat intelligence.

As DNI during the Obama administration, Clapper served as one of the president's principal advisers and oversaw the U.S. intelligence community from 2010 to 2017.

He also advised the Department of Defense on matters such as counterintelligence and security as part of his responsibilities as undersecretary for intelligence.

Clapper's military intelligence career also includes time leading the Defense Intelligence Agency and serving at the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, which became the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, for nearly five years.

In the private sector, he spent six years at three intelligence companies.
