Sherri Ramsay, senior adviser, CyberPoint International

Sherri Ramsay has been fighting cybercriminals, hacktivists and other cyber threats since the 1990s. She is currently the senior adviser at CyberPoint International and is engaged in strategy development and planning, partnership development and marketing. 

She is the former director of the National Security Agency/Central Security Service Threat Operations Center (NTOC) and a former member of the board of directors of the Armed Forces Communications Electronic Administration (AFCEA). 

As the NTOC director, Ramsay led the discovery and characterization of cyber threats and coordinated efforts to counter threats for the DOD, DHS and FBI.

She serves on the board of advisers for the Hume Research Center at Virginia Tech and on the board of directors for EiQ Networks.

“I think the difference between my career and the career of today's young women, is that today's women can be much more informed and have many more career choices available to them than me,” Ramsay says.
