Over his career, Pete has worked at retail, media, entertainment, financial services and information technology companies. He has consistently proven to be an innovator, as well as in inventor having developed a number of proprietary IT security technologies over the course of his career. Having Pete on the NTSC Board adds another strong CISO voice to the Coalition”.

“I am thrilled to be joining such a prestigious board, which includes the CISOs from leading companies and government agencies across the nation, said Chronis.” “There is a void that the NTSC will fill, and that is providing a sounding board for the national CISO community so that our voices will be heard when it comes to national issues and policies that impact the private sector. I look forward to working with the NTSC team and the Board of Director’s as we develop our policy forum and begin the process of engaging our legislative leaders on cybersecurity issues that impact our businesses.”
