Feature Friday with James Mottola!

The United States Secret Service was established in 1865 to combat counterfeiting.  In 1901, the agency was charged with protecting America’s political leaders, their families, and visiting heads of state or government.


James Mottola is a frequent collaborator of mine on the Everything Cyber playlist, as well as other engagements revolving around cybersecurity and cyber liability.  What some of you may not know is that Jim spent 20+ years in the United States Secret Service.  That’s where he was indoctrinated into the world of cyber.

We’re taking this episode of Did You Know That? to explore Jim’s time with the Secret Service, talk about the agency’s mission, and discuss how it prepared him for the work he does today.  While Jim doesn’t reveal any agency secrets, you will get a better idea of how it’s disparate mandates are handled and why there is intense competition among all government agencies.
