William Metts (USA)
William Metts has split his professional life into two main disciplines: technology and human intelligence. Bridging the gap between the different intelligence spectrums areas to achieve true fusion and flawless analysis is his passion. The combination of talent, ability, integrity and creativity within all the members of the Global Risk team is without parallel in either discipline, any company, any government agency. Solving big problems for big clients like Microsoft, IBM, First Union Capital Markets, Digex, Dell, Intel and SAP forged his “no problem too big” mindset. Working for the U.S. Government in the intelligence field gave him insight into the incredible benefit of working across multiple agencies simultaneously. Currently, his biggest challenge is to educate clients on the critical importance of data science, data protection, data collection, data normalization and data analysis; then the real value proposition – artificial intelligence, deep learning, machine learning – can benefit business, government and society. Cybersecurity is central to the process, but redefined in such a way where ineffective defensive measures are replaced with a warrior spirit to defeat cyber-enemies. It’s a tough talk with any group, but it is the talk that needs to happen – today.

Josh Merritt (USA)
