American International Group (AIG) has appointed a former White House cybersecurity advisor who served as first US Senate-confirmed national cyber director to its board.
The company has elected John (Chris) Inglis (pictured) as an independent Director, effective March 1.
A former national cyber director and an advisor to President of the United States Joe Biden on cybersecurity from 2021 to 2023, Inglis is an expert on cyber intelligence and security, with a distinguished career in US federal defense, public and private sector service, and academia.
After 43 years of federal service, including 28 years at the National Security Agency and seven years as its deputy director, Inglis retired from the Department of Defense in January 2014. He is currently a strategic advisor at Paladin Capital Group, having previously served as a managing director for seven years before joining the Biden Administration.
AIG lead independent director, John Rice, said: “Chris Inglis is a highly accomplished leader who will provide insight and perspective based on his deep experience with cyber intelligence and advanced technology. Chris brings nearly five decades of distinguished military service as well as public and private sector leadership to AIG, and we look forward to welcoming him as our newest Board member.”
Inglis has been a US Naval Academy Looker Distinguished Visiting Professor for Cyber Studies, US Air Force Academy Milanovich Visiting Professor for Cyber Studies, Commissioner on the US Cyberspace Solarium Commission, member of the Department of Defense Science Board, trustee for National Intelligence University, and member of the boards of several public and private corporations.
Inglis’ military career includes 30 years of service in the US Air Force and Air National Guard, from which he retired as a command pilot at the rank of Brigadier General.
