Patrick Bergy has over a decade as an Information Assurance Security Officer (IASO), Information Management Officer (IMO) and Knowledge Management Officer (KMO) for the highest levels of secured networks and programs in our Department of Defense. He voluntarily deployed in some of the most austere environments in Iraq and Afghanistan for a combined total of nearly 20 months.
After that Bergy spent from 2010 to 2015 as a KMO in South Korea providing collaboration tools our military can use in moving our main US presence from Seoul to Pyeongtaek. Prior to the decade with the Department of Defense, he spent a decade in computer and network administration and security in the private sector with a great deal of knowledge in electronic voting.
His background is unique in that it ranges from providing Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) support to the “tip of the spear” in Afghanistan, to pioneering tactical, clandestine, social media psychological warfare capabilities for our military, and for commercial use as well. If any of that sounds exactly like what the FBI just indicted 13 Russians for doing, you wouldn’t be wrong.
