Former U.S. National Cyber Director Boards Claroty


Claroty has announced the appointment of Chris Inglis, former U.S. National Cyber Director, to its advisory board.

“Given the critical need to protect the infrastructure on which essential functions to our daily lives depend, we need to give equal, if not greater, attention to the cyber-physical technologies that make up the foundations of those systems, be it oil pipelines, electrical grids, or hospitals,” said Inglis. “The White House Cyber Strategy and the series of National Defense Authorisation Act Sections, which call upon the Department of Defense to modernise and secure their OT infrastructure, reinforces the level of criticality. Claroty has proven, purpose-built solutions that address these needs at scale, and I’m looking forward to contributing to their development of even greater innovation for a world that increasingly requires them.”

As a Visiting Professor at the U.S. Air Force and Naval Academies, Inglis continues to shape the next generation of cybersecurity leaders. He also serves as a senior advisor to Hakluyt and Company and is a valued member of the Huntington Bancshares Board. His dedication to advancing cybersecurity is further evidenced by his role on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity Advisory Council.

From 2021 to 2023, Inglis served as the inaugural Senate-confirmed U.S. National Cyber Director in the White House. Prior to this, he contributed significantly as a Commissioner on the U.S. Cyberspace Solarium Commission. His experience also includes eight years as the Deputy Director and Chief Operating Officer of the National Security Agency and three years as the Special U.S. Liaison to London. With a military career spanning 30 years in the U.S. Air Force and Air National Guard, Mr. Inglis retired as a Brigadier General and holds the rating of USAF Command Pilot.

“We are thrilled to welcome Chris Inglis to Claroty’s advisory board and to harness his immense wealth of knowledge to help drive the development of our security solutions and our partnerships with the public sector, including the U.S. federal government,” said Yaniv Vardi, CEO of Claroty. “His extensive experience, leadership, and deep understanding of cybersecurity from a government perspective will be invaluable, especially as we guide our customers through evolving cybersecurity regulatory environments and deeply complex global threat landscape.”

Claroty’s advisory board is currently chaired by U.S. Navy Admiral (Ret.) Michael S. Rogers, includes executives from Fortune 500 companies and spans industries such as transportation, biotechnology and digital infrastructure.
