Tony Sager
Senior Vice President & Chief Evangelist at Center for Internet Security

Tony Sager is a Senior VP for the Center for Internet Security. He led the development of the CIS Controls, a community consensus project to identify and support best practices in cybersecurity. His “volunteer army” identifies practices that will stop the vast majority of attacks seen today, and he leads projects that will share, scale, and sustain these practices for worldwide adoption.

Tony retired from the National Security Agency in 2012 after 34 years as a mathematician, software vulnerability analyst, and executive manager. Tony oversaw all NSA Red and Blue Teams, as well as all security product evaluation teams. He helped guide the Agency’s top talent development programs, and founded the Vulnerability Analysis and Operations Group (NSA’s premier technical organization in defense).
