Flashpoint National Security Solutions adds advisory board
On June 13, Flashpoint announced the formation of its public sector advisory board comprising four national security leaders. The board will provide strategic guidance, industry knowledge and expertise, and unique perspectives to help Flashpoint continue to drive positive outcomes for its government customers and their missions.
Flashpoint National Security Solutions (FNSS) advisory board members include:
- Lt Gen. Scott Howell, who served as the 15th Commander of JSOC and as Vice Commander at USSOCOM;
- Andrew Makridis, who served as Intelligence Briefer under the Bush administration following 9/11 and who recently retired from four years in the COO role at the CIA;
- Matthew Swenson, who recently served as Division Chief of the Cyber Division at the Homeland Security Investigations Cyber Crime Center; and
- Tim Newberry, a former US Naval Submarine Officer, the Founder of BlackHorse Solutions, Inc. and a National Security Entrepreneur and Advisor.
FNSS is trusted by its national security partners for missions focused on global issues, virtual persona operations, integrated deterrence, intelligence operations support, open-source intelligence (OSINT), and investigations support. Flashpoint’s expertise in combining raw data with finished intelligence accelerates the use of OSINT for government and national security-related missions.
“I couldn’t imagine a better core group of individuals for our inaugural advisory board,” said Brian Brown, president of FNSS. “Their collective expertise and guidance will ensure that we can proactively meet the needs of our customers across defense, law enforcement, state and local government, federal civilian, and the intelligence community—especially pertaining to the adoption of OSINT and virtual operations.”
