Previously David was the United States Special Operations Command’s (USSOCOM) first-generation Chief Data Officer since August 2018, a role in which he is responsible for the creation of a data-driven decision-making culture while leading the integration of Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning/automation across the US Special Forces enterprise.

Immediately prior to this assignment, Dave was the Associate Director of Technology Investment at the Secretary of the Air Force’s (SECAF) Concept Development and Management Office for Advanced Analytics and Technology Investment. Since 2016, Dave was responsible for advising SECAF and Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence leadership on industry leading technology required to advance the Defense Intelligence Enterprise mission across operational and functional requirements.

Spirk was the first United States Marine Corps (USMC) Intelligence Specialist in Afghanistan after the attacks on September 11, 2001 where as a member of Task Force-58, more specifically the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit (Special Operations Capable), he participated in the seizure of Kandahar Airfield and the reopening of the American Embassy in Kabul. Following his time in Afghanistan, Dave received orders to United States Southern Command (USSOUTHCOM). While working at USSOUTHCOM he deployed to Colombia numerous times, totaling over 18 months in country, and held various analytic/targeting positions before leaving the Marine Corps when asked by the USSOUTHCOM Director of Intelligence to support a Venezuela Division as a Department of Army Civilian. During this time, Dave served as the USSOUTHCOM Commander’s principal briefer for distinguished visitors and Strategic Planning Process' Mission Panel Chair for Ensure Domain Awareness out of which arose the Partnership for the Americas Command Center.

Dave joined the Office of the Director of National Intelligence in June 2007 to be the Chief of Operations for the Cuba/Venezuela Mission Manager where he also took the lead role in developing and implementing the US Intelligence Community's strategy to support US Interagency and Government of Mexico efforts against the expanding influence and violence of drug cartels. Dave is a former-Marine that served across echelons at various east coast USMC elements that set the stage for many deployments throughout the Balkans, Africa, and South Asia. In 2009, he was selected by the Director of National Intelligence to stand up the Associate Director of National Intelligence for Afghanistan and Pakistan (ADNI Af/Pak) and was retained by the ADNI Af/Pak to serve as its Deputy and Chief of Operations.

Spirk joined the USSOCOM Intelligence Directorate in March 2015 and assumed the position of Associate Director. Before the shift to USSOCOM, he served as the Deputy Director of Intelligence at United States Central Command (USCENTCOM). As the Deputy Director of Intelligence for Operations, Spirk led the USCENTCOM J2's Divisions for Operations, Plans, Intelligence Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR), and Foreign Disclosure/Special Security Office. Spirk arrived at USCENTCOM in August of 2010 but quickly moved forward to Afghanistan to serve as the Commander of the International Security and Assistance Force's Senior Intelligence Advisor.

Head of Audit: Group Internal Audit Operations, Technical and Advisory, Nedbank (South Africa)

"Lead to Live the Life you Lead!" is a self para-phrased quote that I have adopted in my approach to leadership in the workplace.
It epitomises my work ethic spanning the past 18 years of my career, 14 of which have been in key leadership roles.
I believe strongly in ones net worth being established by the network of strong individuals one leads, to ensure the achievement of common strategic organisational goals and major change initiatives in a diverse and ever-changing risk landscape.
This ethos has allowed me to garner valuable experience in the Internal Audit and Risk Management platforms during my years at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and Nedbank.
Serving across various highly regulated and differentiated industries, such as Financial Services, Mining and Consumer Products, has allowed me the opportunity to explore and equip my skills-base in Internal Control Environments, Culture and Ethics, Risk Management and Tolerance, Combined Assurance, Thought Leadership, Knowledge Management, Major Change Management Strategies, Quality Assurance, People, Innovation and Agile New-Ways-of-Working.
I describe my career over the past 18 years as being "a creator of opportunity and a liberator of talent" whilst never forgetting my own thirst for continuous improvement, knowledge and learning.

Hieu Ngo

Former hacker and cybercriminal - now Cybersecurity Specialist, National Cyber Security Center of Vietnam, Co-founder, ChongLuaDao.Vn

Hieu (Hieupc) a Vietnamese hacker and identity thief. He was convicted in the United States of stealing hundreds of thousands of persons' personally identifiable information and in 2015 was sentenced to 13 years in U.S. federal prison. He has recently been recruited by Vietnam’s National Cybersecurity Center (NCSC) as a technical expert.

From 2007 to 2013, he operated a "massive international hacking and identity theft scheme from his home in Vietnam" in which he stole personally identifiable information (such as names, Social Security numbers, and bank account data) of 200 million U.S. citizens. Hieupc obtained this data by hacking companies' databases, then advertised and offered (on two websites he operated, which were later shuttered) the stolen information for purchase by other cybercriminals. he was also able to obtain data from Court Ventures, an Experian subsidiary, by "posing as a private investigator operating out of Singapore."

Hieupc made nearly $2 million from his scheme. The Internal Revenue Service has confirmed that 13,673 U.S. citizens, whose stolen PII was sold on his websites, have been victimised through the filing of $65 million in fraudulent individual income tax returns.

Hieupc says, he wants to mentor young people and help guide them on the right path, and away from cybercrime. He’s been brutally honest about his crimes and the destruction he’s caused. His LinkedIn profile states up front that he’s a convicted cybercriminal.

For more details on his background, you can view his wikipedia page.
