CrowdStrike Inc. today announced that Steven

Chabinsky, CrowdStrike’s general counsel and chief risk officer, has been appointed by

the President to the Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity. Under the

Commission, Chabinsky and 11 other industry leaders have been directed by the White

House to recommend “bold, actionable steps that the government, private sector, and the

nation as a whole can take to bolster cybersecurity in today’s digital world.”

President Obama, in an official statement, commended the members for bringing ”a

wealth of experience and talent to this important role,” and charged the Commission with

“the critically-important task of identifying the steps that our nation must take to ensure

our cybersecurity in an increasingly digital world.”

“It is imperative that we lay the groundwork for the safer and more resilient use of

emerging technologies and digital information for generations to come. Doing so involves

solving hard problems with no easy answers, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t answers.

I’m optimistic that we can find those answers if we pull together with a unity of purpose,”

said Steven Chabinsky, CrowdStrike’s general counsel and chief risk officer. “I am looking

forward to contributing to this important mission by working with the rest of the

Commission, which will be soliciting comments from the public, as we seek to recommend

actionable steps that balance the often competing demands of security, privacy,

functionality, convenience, and cost, all within a dynamic, interoperable, expansive, and

international context.”

“We wish Steve and the rest of the Commissioners every success in this important effort.

Their dedicated and thoughtful leadership on these issues holds great potential for

promoting innovation and the benefits of technology, while lowering the very real security

risks we are facing today,” said George Kurtz, CrowdStrike’s co-founder and chief

executive officer.

Steven Chabinsky is a veteran cybersecurity expert with more than 15 years of experience

in public service, having previously held the positions of Deputy of the FBI’s Cyber

Division and Chief of its Cyber Intelligence Section. He is also a columnist for Security

magazine and an adjunct faculty member at The George Washington University.

Chabinsky received a B.A. from Duke University and a J.D. from Duke University School of
