Josh Moulin has worked in the cybersecurity industry for 19 years and held a variety of diverse and unique positions. He has been recognized as a global expert in the areas of cybersecurity, risk management, digital forensics, information technology, organizational leadership, and facilitation skills. Mr. Moulin has been sought after by organizations including the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, Veterans Affairs, intelligence agencies, FDIC, the Federal Reserve, and many others to bring his advice and insights on a variety of organizational and technical topics.

He began his cyber career while in law enforcement after he founded the only high-tech crimes unit in the region. That technology-focused unit later evolved to a regional, multi-jurisdictional FBI cybercrime task force that Moulin commanded for seven years. During that time, he successfully obtained ASCLD/LAB accreditation for the municipal digital forensics lab and was the only such accredited lab at the time in the U.S. He held the positions of detective, sergeant, and lieutenant during his tenure. While in law enforcement he testified on hundreds of occasions, including as an expert witness in state and federal court in the area of cybercrime and digital forensics.

In 2012, Moulin left law enforcement to pursue an opportunity within national security with Northrop Grumman, working as the Deputy Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) of the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS), part of the U.S. Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration. The NNSS is a highly secure 1360 square-mile area located about 65 miles away from Las Vegas and is part of the nuclear weapons enterprise. The NNSS provides arms control, emergency response, counterterrorism, weapons testing, nuclear nonproliferation, nuclear stockpile stewardship, and special technology development among other national security significant missions and has classified and unclassified networks spanning the globe. Moulin eventually became the CISO and then later the Chief Information Officer (CIO), responsible for all IT and cybersecurity for the national security focused agency.

After five years at the NNSS, Mr. Moulin went to work for Gartner (NYSE:IT), the world’s leading research and advisory firm. As an Executive Partner in Gartner’s federal region, he was a trusted advisor to a portfolio of federal civilian and U.S. Department of Defense senior executives by coaching, partnering, equipping, and challenging them to achieve their mission critical priorities. Using his personal experience and the depth of Gartner’s research and experts, Moulin helped clients shape organizational strategy, meet and exceed business/mission objectives, recruit and retain talent, reduce risk, lead through change, drive innovation, implement cybersecurity best practices, and undergo digital transformations. While at Gartner, he was identified as a leader across Executive Partners globally, and frequently requested to help other executive advisors in the area of providing valuable consultations, facilitation, and presentations.

Mr. Moulin also serves as the Senior Vice President of Operations and Security Services for a global cybersecurity non-profit organization. In this role, he provides executive leadership while focusing on the mission of improving the cybersecurity posture of state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) government organizations. Moulin is responsible for planning, developing, and executing cybersecurity products and services, some of which include a 24×7 security operations center (SOC), the cybersecurity incident response team (CIRT), digital forensics, vulnerability management, classified and unclassified cyber threat intelligence, and election infrastructure security.
