“John is a recognized leader in both the private and public sectors. We are excited to have him join our Advisory Board. His knowledge and experience will be invaluable as we continue our global expansion and evolve our solutions, and we look forward to working closely with him,” said LookingGlass Executive Vice President, Ron Nielson.

“Throughout my time in the government, I saw first-hand the growing sophistication of threat actors, which are now affecting both the government and private corporations. I am proud to join the Advisory Board of LookingGlass because their best-in-class threat intelligence platform pushes organizations to think of what their adversary can see and do, and to use that intelligence to inform their cybersecurity program. I look forward to helping the company deliver solutions that will solve significant national security challenges,” added Zangardi.
