As Principal for Crosslin Technologies, Shane Clancy provides a broad range of information security, risk management, and compliance validation services to financial, health care, retail, manufacturing, educational and non-governmental organizations. He builds upon over two decades of success in both the management of information security programs and the technical implementation and evaluation of information security technologies to ensure that his clients’ immediate needs and strategic goals are met in the most efficient manner possible. Prior to joining Crosslin Technologies, Shane served as the Director of Federal Risk Management at Securicon, LLC.

As the Director of Securion’s Federal Risk Management Practice, Shane was responsible for ensuring that his federal client base addressed information security risks and compliance matters. He has assisted multiple federal agencies in the elimination of both risk and inefficient information security business practices, which dramatically improved their ability to handle increasing workloads and evolving threat vectors. His approach to proactive risk management assisted large federal agencies within the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, Transportation and Defense in achieving and sustaining their information security goals.

In addition, Shane has successfully performed as a program manager for security management, oversight and compliance at a DHS agency, where his staff improved the agency FISMA score from 74% to 96% within six months and sustained an ‘A’ for the duration of his tenure. Prior to that role, he served as a program manager for an intelligence agency within the Defense Department, where he led a reorganization of the IA capabilities that dramatically improved the agency’s ability to detect and respond to emerging cyber threats. Before that, Shane performed as a project manager for several agencies’ IA programs, served as the senior subject matter expert (SME) on the FBI Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Test Team for 5 years, led multiple technical information security engineering efforts and served in the United States Navy as an Intelligence Specialist. Shane holds the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard Quality Security Assessor (PCI DSS QSA), GIAC Incident Handling and Advanced Hacker Techniques (GCIH), GIAC Forensic Analyst (GCFA), GIAC Web Application Penetration Tester (GWAPT), and Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certifications and has served as the Reston, Virginia GCIH Mentor, as the technical representative from the Federal Bureau of Investigation to the Director of National Intelligence, and as a speaker at the SANS Institute’s Application Security Summit in Washington, DC. Shane has authored works on malicious code, security engineering, and government policy and codes in three languages.
