Simone Petrella
Chief Cyber Srategy Officer


Simone is Chief Cyberstrategy Officer at CyberVista. She is responsible for developing, communicating, and executing strategic initiatives. She also leads product development and delivery of cybersecurity training and education curriculums as well as workforce initiatives for executives, cyber practitioners, and continuing education.

Her natural drive and enthusiasm saw her graduating with honors from the part-time degree program at Catholic University’s School of Law while holding down a full-time job and passing the bar. She also attended Georgetown University, graduating with both a BA in Government and an MA in International Law and Policy. She’s since spent over a decade in the cybersecurity industry, both in the government and commercial sectors specializing in cyber threat intelligence and analysis.

Simone led Booz Allen Hamilton’s all-source cyber threat intelligence business within the Defense Intelligence Agency and later in the commercial sector helped financial and retail clients build out their cyber fusion centers.

In her spare time she likes to play a little golf, enjoy a glass of wine, spend time with her husband and travel. She also loves anywhere that doesn’t have the internet.
