Jason Healey is a nonresident senior fellow for the Cyber Statecraft Initiative of the Atlantic Council and senior research scholar at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, focusing on international cooperation, competition, and conflict in cyberspace.

From 2011 to 2015, he worked as the director of the Council’s Cyber Statecraft Initiative. Under his leadership, the Initiative made its mission “Saving Cyberspace” to help create a more sustainable Internet that remains as open and free for future generations as it was for its pioneers. He guided the Initiative’s work with Fortune 500 companies, governments, and other stakeholders to examine the overlap of national security, international relations, and economic security issues and to promote thought leadership in cyber statecraft.Mr. Healey is also the editor of the first-ever history of cyber conflict, A Fierce Domain: Conflict in Cyberspace, 1986 to 2012 and coauthor of the book Cyber Security Policy Guidebook by Wiley. Additionally, his ideas on cyber topics have been widely published in over a hundred articles and essays published by the Atlantic Council; the National Research Council; academic journals such as those from Brown and Georgetown Universities; along with the Aspen Strategy Group and other think tanks.

Immediately after the 9/11 attacks, his efforts as vice chairman of the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center created bonds between the finance sector and government that remain strong today.Starting his career in the United States Air Force, Mr. Healey earned two Meritorious Service Medals for his early work in cyber operations at Headquarters Air Force at the Pentagon and as a plankholder (founding member) of the Joint Task Force – Computer Network Defense, the world’s first joint cyber warfighting unit.
