Keynote Speaker:


Cynthia Storer HeadshotFrom Analyst to Hero: How Big Data Led to Bin Laden

Cindy Storer, Former CIA Senior Analyst

Cindy was part of a team of CIA intelligence analysts – dubbed "The Sisterhood" – who discovered obscure data patterns signaling that Al-Qaeda was a coordinated and highly dangerous threat. Though the team raised the alarm, few people listened. Then 9/11 changed the world. Cindy became a key strategic analyst, helping the nation’s policymakers frame their understanding of terrorism and Al-Qaeda. Her pioneering work helped lay the foundation for the efforts of the analysts and targeting officers who eventually found Bin Laden’s hideout, as depicted in the movie Zero Dark Thirty. In this riveting keynote address, Cindy tells the inside story of how Big Data helped lead to the identification and capture of Al-Qaeda leaders, including the most wanted man in history. Her inspirational messages include: believe in what you do, take responsibility, trust your instincts, and think outside the box.
