General Michael Hayden is a retired four-star general who served as director of the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency when the course of world events was changing at a rapid rate. As head of the country’s premier intelligence agencies, he was on the frontline of global change, the war on terrorism and the growing cyber challenge. He understands the dangers, risks, and potential rewards of the political, economic, and security situations facing us.  A CNN national security analyst and frequent commentator in top publications, Hayden is valued for his expertise on intelligence matters, cyber security, government surveillance, geopolitics, and more. He was featured in the HBO documentary Manhunt, which looked at espionage through the eyes of the insiders who led the secret war against Osama bin Laden, and in Showtime’s The Spymasters, a detailed look at the directors of the Central Intelligence Agency.


Hayden is currently a principal at The Chertoff Group and serves on a variety of boards and consultancies. He is the Founder of the Michael V. Hayden Center for Intelligence, Policy and International Security and a distinguished visiting professor at the George Mason University Schar School of Policy and Government. His recent memoir, Playing to the Edge: American Intelligence in the Age of Terror, has been a New York Times best-seller and was recently selected as one of the 100 most notable books of 2016.
