Mark Elliott

CEO, Comar Cyber

Mark served for over a decade at CIA where he worked as an Operations Officer and ops leader in field assignments. He has extensive experience at the intersection of HUMINT operations and technology. As a manager at Headquarters in the CIA’s Directorate of Operations, Mark worked with companies, investors, and other elements of government to identify, purchase, and create technologies for CIA’s operational use. He used his training and experience in multiple international and domestic tours to identify and counter nation-state cyber threats to protect enterprise and operational systems.

While completing his Master’s thesis on creating a national cyber civil defense program, Mark realized that one of the biggest targets for cyber-attacks is the corporate employee population. The best way for companies to defend themselves is to teach their employees about all the ways people – not computers – can be hacked. Having taken hours of boring cybersecurity “refreshers” over the years, Mark realized that people don’t like to think of themselves as targets.
