Cipher’s Insider Threat practice is dedicated to helping clients in both the public and private sectors develop, implement, and oversee world-class insider threat programs.

Mark Kelton, Former Deputy Director for Counterintelligence of the CIA’s National Clandestine Service, has joined the Annapolis-based competitive intelligence and technology consulting firm Cipher Systems LLC. As the new Director of Insider Threat Solutions, Mr. Kelton will work with public and private sector clients to establish, improve and certify their Insider Threat programs.

“Mark brings a tremendous wealth of knowledge and experience to Cipher’s Insider Threat practice,” said Peter Grimm, Managing Director of Cipher. “He has seen firsthand the enormous damage that malevolent actors with privileged access inside organizations can do. He is also a leading expert in helping government agencies and companies design and implement world-class insider threat programs to protect against this critical risk. We are thrilled to be able to bring his deep understanding to bear in helping our clients tackle these important challenges.”

Mr. Kelton recently retired from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) after 34 years in intelligence operations. He has unmatched expertise in the deterrence and detection of insider threats, assessments of counterintelligence risk, and crisis management.

“I am very pleased to be joining the talented team at Cipher. Their consulting capabilities and experience, robust partner environment, and dedication to serving the mission of their clients are what attracted me,” said Mr. Kelton. “Cipher is the perfect platform for me to provide the maximum possible value to clients in helping them protect themselves from insider threats.”

Mr. Kelton will lead Cipher’s new Insider Threat practice, which is comprised of a team of experienced consultants dedicated to helping clients in both the public and private sectors develop, implement, and oversee world-class insider threat programs. In partnership with other Federal service providers, and leading technology firms specializing in predictive behavioral analysis and user anomaly detection, Cipher delivers a robust and comprehensive insider threat solution.
