Before Core4ce, Wilmer played an instrumental role in U.S. national security, serving as the deputy CIO for cybersecurity and the CISO at the DoD, and as the principal assistant director for national security and international affairs within the Office of Science & Technology Policy (OSTP) at the White House.
