Director Cyber Strategy Implementation at The MITRE Corporation

Biography

Ms. Stempfley rose through the ranks in government, eventually to become the acting assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security’s cybersecurity office. Now, she’s director of cybersecurity implementation at the nonprofit MITRE, where she deals with and confronts the same challenges she did at DHS, but instead researches them from outside the federal bureaucracy. “Like so many people I know, I find that people are passionate about a couple of things: They’re passionate about their ability to contribute, and they’re passionate about having meaningful things to work on,” Ms. Stempfley said. “Public service gives me those pieces. These are not problems that the market is going to solve naturally.”
