Chris Krebs is the founding partner at Krebs Stamos Group LLC, a cyber consulting firm which quickly landed its first customer, the recently beleaguered SolarWinds. He also served as Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) in the United States Department of Homeland Security from November 2018 to November 2020. As Director, he oversaw CISA’s efforts to defend civilian networks, manage systemic risk to national critical functions, and work with stakeholders to raise the security baseline of the Nation’s cyber and physical infrastructure.

Prior to CISA, Mr. Krebs served in various Department of Homeland Security roles, responsible for a range of cybersecurity, critical infrastructure and national resilience issues. Prior to his time at DHS, he directed U.S. cybersecurity policy for Microsoft, and advised industry and government clients on complex cybersecurity and business risk matters.

Before Microsoft, Mr. Krebs advised industry and federal, state, and local government customers on a range of cybersecurity and risk management issues. This is his second tour working at DHS, previously serving as the Senior Advisor to the Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection and playing a formative role in several national and international risk management programs.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental sciences from the University of Virginia and a J.D. from the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University.
