OODA Co-Founders Matt Devost and Bob Gourley were interviewed by John Gilroy for Federal News Radio.

“Every industry seems to have insiders who are well respected in specific vertical markets.  In the federal government, cyber security is a particularly closed community where reputations are not made by getting on the front page of The Washington Post, but by keeping splashy headlines OFF the front page of a national publication.

Bob Gourley and Matt Devost, co-founders at OODA LLC are examples of people who have earned a reputation in the cyber community by grit and long-term strategy.  They have recently formed a company called OODA, LLC.  Certainly, the cognoscenti in the Pentagon know that OODA stands for Observe, Orient, Decide, and Act.

During the discussion, Devost details how he worked on several Red Teams at the Defense Department. For those out of the loop,  a “red team” is not the Boston Red Sox , but a designated set of people who go about testing the cyberdefense of a specific network.”
