Cybersecurity Executive & Trusted Advisor
Dr. Earl Crane, PhD, CISSP
I am a cybersecurity executive and trusted advisor to public and private sector organizations, where I have a track record of success helping them to manage their strategy, risk and cybersecurity programs.
I have extensive experience in the security field, having worked at early security startups, the White House National Security Council, the financial sector and other Fortune 100s. From 2015-2018 I founded and ran Emergynt, a digital risk management platform based on my PhD research.
I am offering an executive security consulting service, where we provide strategic cyber risk management to leading CISOs and security executives. I also provide CISO-as-a-service, supporting firms looking to hire their first CISO or fill a need after a significant event.
I can draw insights to help address your specific challenge from an extensive network of CISOs - from teaching hundreds of cybersecurity experts over 18 years at Carnegie Mellon to interfacing with many leading government and banking security executives.
