On April 21, Fred Fleitz, senior fellow at Center for Security Policy, will deliver a presentation on "Cyber Security and the Aftermath of the Snowden Leaks" at Fairmont State University.

The presentation will take place at 1 p.m. in the Falcon Center third floor conference rooms and is sponsored by the National Security and Intelligence Program and the Open Source Intelligence Exchange at Fairmont State. The presentation will be followed by a reception and admission is free and open to the public.

Fleitz served in U.S. national security positions for 25 years at the CIA, DIA, Department of State and the House Intelligence Committee staff and, during the administration of former president George W. Bush, was chief of staff to John Bolton, then Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security. During his tenure with the House Intelligence Committee, he was the staff expert on the Iranian and North Korean nuclear programs and briefed key National Intelligence Estimates to committee members. 

He founded and served as director of the Langley Intelligence Group Network (LIGNET), Newsmax Media's global intelligence and forecasting service in 2011 after he left government. Currently, he is the LIGNET Chief Analyst. Last November, Fleitz was named a senior fellow with the Center for Security Policy and has concentrated on NSA reform. He is also a regular commentator on Secure Freedom radio and other radio programs, frequently appears on the Fox News Channel, is the author of "Peacekeeping Fiascoes of the 1990s" (Praeger) and is working on books on intelligence reform and the Iranian nuclear program. 

Fleitz obtained an M.A. in political economy from Fordham University and a B.A. in politics from Saint Joseph's University.
