Dr Eric Cole - professional cut out

DR. ERIC COLE has worked in cybersecurity for over 30 years, helping organizations of all shapes and sizes properly protect and secure their information. He began his career as a professional hacker with the CIA and learned that he could break into any computer that is accessible from the internet. He then used his expertise and knowledge to build companies focused on defensive solutions.

Dr. Cole has done work for Lockheed Martin and McAfee and has consulted clients all around the world, including Saudi Aramco, Nouryon, electrical utility companies, nuclear reactors, financial organizations, and healthcare providers. He performs security for the Gates family and was a commissioner for President Obama, for whom Dr. Cole continues to provide security advice.

He has written several books on cybersecurity, and he’s often featured on many news channels including CNN, Fox, CBS, and NBC. He was one of the authors of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s cybersecurity guide, and he received a cyber wingman award from the Air Force and was pinned with his Cyber Wings for building out and developing their entire cybersecurity program.





My name is Eric Cole and I am on a mission to make cyber space a safe place to live, work, and raise a family. 

Throughout my 30 year career I have consistently tried to understand the root cause of a problem and look for solutions to those problems and if a solution does not exist, create a solution.  Almost anyone, in any business has heard the term cybersecurity and in talking with executives, it is an area that they are very concerned with, yet most will admit they are not exactly sure what it is or what they can do about. 

As one CEO told me: “I spent money and did what the cybersecurity team told me to do, but we still suffered a significant breach and I feel helpless”.  As I continued to ask questions, I realized that the problem is a communication gap.  Executives and business leaders speak one language and cybersecurity engineers speak a different language. 

While there is a lot of information on cybersecurity written in technical language, I was not able to find a resource that was explaining the problem of cybersecurity in the language of business.  As I have done throughout my 30 year career, when there is a problem without a solution, I create the solution.  Thus the birth of Cyber Crisis. 

Cyber Crisis is written as a business resource that anyone can read to understand the problem and what you can do to fix it.  When you finish reading Cyber Crisis you will be empowered to recognize that you are a target, that cybersecurity is your responsibility, and what questions you need to ask to make sure you business is on the winning team when it comes to cybersecurity. 

Be ready for an amazing transformation and enjoy the journey into the world of cyberspace and learning about the number one problem facing your family, your business, your country, and the world because we are in the middle of a Cyber Crisis.
