My name is Greg Hansen, I'm a recovering NSA Insider.

I posted a limited introduction here, and also got ahead of myself by telling you about my book here. After spending some time with the site management, I was given permission to post links to my book again, more about that in a bit. But first, I was urged to give you a new introduction, with a little more detail.

Below is a short bio covering my last few years.

Until I was kicked off Leidos’s NANA contract I was a Senior Scientist with Leidos; San Antonio, TX (2004 - 2014)
I coordinated with the NSA site coordinator for cyber command in the development of conceptual process strategies for cross-agency collaboration for Cyber Intelligence Preparation of the Environment (CIPE) planning.
Notable Achievements:

Developed highly interactive analytical tool in 3 months with only 1 additional team member. Launch of live system attracted 300 users from multiple Intelligence Agencies and was recognized by DIRNSA for thwarting several cyber-attacks.

Saved millions in workforce expenses by reducing the need for 10 full time employees for project execution to less than 2.

Increased productivity more than 400% by automating rote analytical process with the adoption of programmatic interfaces to NSA software tools.

Received 2 Gold Standard Awards for outstanding cyber-intrusion work.

Recognized as Subject Matter Expert for system performance analysis of Technical SIGINT Information Factory (TSIF) modeling and simulation.

Prior to that I owned my own company Computer Aided Process Improvement (CAPI); Ponte Vedra Beach, FL (1993 – 2004)
I delivered consulting services to US Government entities and private commercial clients to increase organizational performance improve responsiveness to end users and clients and reduce operational costs. Accountable for annual budget oversight of $3M+. Major contracts included the National Security Agency (NSA), Defense Modeling and Simulation Office (DMSO), National Institute for Science and Technology (NIST), Management, Organizational and Business Improvement Services (MOBIS), Johnson & Johnson, LexisNexis, Veteran's Benefits Administration, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Constellation Brands and United States Postal Service.

Prior to that (going way back now) I worked at the SEI where I managed the process modeling and simulation projects.


In The Crosshairs: How I Became the Target of an NSA Power Struggle

While there are a few books published by NSA insiders there are none that that describe the internal squabbling that permeates the agency and the impact of the NSA culture on the Intelligence Community. It contains all the elements of a good spy novel - backroom politics, misappropriated funds, dubious contracting practices, scandals, guerrilla warfare, hostile takeovers and personal vendettas. One person who witnessed the events described in the book said, “I really think thrill seekers, conspiracy theorists, and generally hardworking Americans will want to read this—it's shrouded in so much mystery, people are craving any insight.”

Amazon.com

My book is about a sequence of events that happened over an eight year period. I had the unmitigated gall to create an extremely powerful tool for essentially no cost when another NSA organization asked for REDACTED BY NSA dollars. Let’s just say that I saved the agency a LOT of money. This, of course, created enemies for me. Ultimately I was set up and kicked out of the agency.

In the coming days, SkepticOverlord has arranged for ATS to receive and publish an exclusive sample chapter of my book for all to read. After that, I'll be open to an "Ask Me Anything" where we can talk my book and NSA experiences. And after that, I'll be sticking around.

I'm confirming the above.

Greg has permission to promote his book, but most importantly, we (ATS and our members) will be helping to get his story out to the wide wide world.

Well I must say, you are persistant! A quality no doubt the NSA looks for. I'll take a look at your material, and save any judgement for later

Nice.

Its great to have you around. I am sure you will provide us with some insight into a world that we only speculate about. Perhaps your membership here can clear up some of the shadows we see peering from the outside in.

In any event, thanks for giving us your time and service. I feel it is a privilege to have you around. Your resume is beyond impressive.

I hope you enjoy your time here.

Thanks again.

Wow. This is the kind of intro we like to see. Welcome to ATS. Can't wait to read your material. I've never seen redacted by the NSA in a thread before lol

How interesting! I'm looking forward to reading that chapter of the book. I hope it's the one that elaborated on the types of internal squabbles and their consequences, but then again, I'll happily cede to your better judgement. Until then, welcome to ATS!

my question is to S.O., will ATS, you or any of the 3 amigos profit from the sale of this book?

If you're really an NSA insider.. what's my favorite naughty site?

Just joking!
Welcome to ATS!

I look forward to your contributions. I'm already interested.

Absolutely not.

Our efforts here are to help Greg get his story out, because it's a story that needs to be out there.

Who cares? He owns the business. Why shouldn't he be able to use it to generate profits? (Assuming that's even happening.)

Wow!!!!!!

Aren't you worried about a backlash from the NSA?

I mean they are ready to tar and feather snowden before they send him to prison.

Good on you though man, if folks don't speak out there is no way we the people will ever find out.

I'm just curious, what type of person takes a job to spy on and sell out his own people? It's like those poor SS soldiers that were just doing their job. Are you proud of the fact that you were a traitor? And that now you have a venue to push your book down our throats? It's not good enough to simply enlighten people, you need to be paid on top of being a traitor?

No thank you. Keep your book.

Very noble SO, I am quite proud to be a member of such an effort.

I will be helping spread this message.


Good on you and ATS!!!!!

Wow, is that really necessary?

This guy is doing the one thing so many of us want, telling us what we only speculate about from a first hand source.

Is this what you would say to snowden?

I think it is very courageous.

I'm simply curious what kind of person is required to sell out your own people. It's not like he's here to enlighten us, he's here to sell his book... to make money. So if you're attempting to sell a product, people are going to criticize you and ask questions.
