Have you ever thought about how a threat actor could use public information from your social media accounts to target you, your family, or your business?
Meet Dr. Sarah Morningstar, President and Founder of Morningstar Consulting, a security threat investigative firm, who thinks about this everyday! Before starting her consulting company, Sarah had an amazing career working for the CIA as an Intelligence Analyst and Intelligence Briefer in both Washington DC and Iraq.
Even though the CIA’s clandestine service receives all the Hollywood glory, it’s really the intelligence analysts who analyze the facts, the propaganda, and the deceit, and sort out fact from fiction. At the end of the day, the intelligence analysts are the people who lay out the alternatives and the recommendations that determine government and military policy --- ultimately translating into who lives and who dies.
Sarah outlines her experiences at the CIA, Iraqi life as one of the few women in leadership positions during the Iraq war, and some of her post-CIA adventures in today's highly polarized social media and political climate. Sarah also provides a glimpse of her experience as THE CIA intelligence analyst responsible for briefing the leader of the U.S. military in Iraq, Commanding General, Lloyd Austin.
As background, General Austin is the current the U.S. Secretary of Defense.
Today, Sarah utilizes her vast experience and analytical skills to protect her clients in what Sarah likes to call, “your stalker’s stalker.”
