Are You Listening?

Lessons in Waste, Abuse, and Mismanagement from the Agency that Doesn't Listen

In the National Security Agency, harassment victims faced disinterest and escalation. Employees were mocked, insulted, and kicked out the door for raising issues. And I watched the agency falsify security records to justify revoking my clearance in an attempt to discourage me from sharing our stories.

The Showcase

An assortment of NSA coins I earned. From the left: Capabilities Directorate, ADET, Workforce Support, and my second Director's coin. The NAVY CIO offsite where I presented OPSEC and SNS. I recall they had someone there who was teaching about ID theft, but didn't even mention Security Freezes. Baffling. My graduation certificate from the Defense Civlian Emerging Leaders Program I attended in 2019. I met some really great people and learned a lot. One of two NSA Director's coins I was given for being proactive about asking questions in his Town Hall events. The second year, I think he recognized me and hesitated a little when he handed over the coin. Going to the Pentagon was definitely a once in a lifetime experience (though I was there a few times overall). I was glad to be a part of the Job Shadow Day event. A briefing for the FBI. Definitely a bucket-list item to speak to another of the big three :) This is my entry for the 2017 OPSEC Symposium where I briefed 'OPSEC is a Waste of Time' to rave reviews. This is a letter of appreciation for my 2017 OPSEC Symposium briefing - 'OPSEC is a Waste of Time'. It can't be said the NSA OPSEC office didn't have a sense of humor! I won a Faculty of the Quarter award, but when they told me to show up to a meeting without any details, I thought I was getting fired. The coolest goodbye gifts I've gotten from an office. A Torii gate-themed thank you plaque from DSRJ. My 10-year employee pin from the NSA. It took some time and effort to get given that they didn't manage the process well and I had to petition for them to get it and send it to me. A challenge coin that I got from the FBI. It's actually quite small - about the size of a 50-cent piece.

Seminars & Briefings
Workshops & Training
Consulting

For your security day, conference, seminar, etc., Jeremy can bring or create a presentation that will stand out and sink in.

This format is best for between one and three key points or messages at a time. Security awareness, leadership, collaboration: pick your topic and let me wow your people!

Workshops are for smaller audiences who want to try their hands at the topics being discussed: tightening one's online presence, advanced search and monitoring skills, or developing a personal security profile. Don't forget listening skills, morale, and building workplace trust!

This format is great for building a lasting impression, but is best with smaller audiences (up to 20).

How is your security awareness program? Is it making a dent? Keeping people engaged? What about your culture? Are people responding to calls for collaboration or do they stay silent?

With a decade of experience fighting bureaucracy and giving voice to employees, Jeremy can show you the blockages and barriers that prevent keep your workforce silent and disinterested.

"Instructor was wonderful! Extremely knowledgeable, great presentation style and enthusiastic. This course definitely succeeded in giving me the tools and awareness I need to evaluate information I post on-line."
