Basing its fellowship awards on a strong record of professional achievement, CSIS summarizes Aaron’s bio as follows:
“David Aaron is a federal prosecutor in the Counterintelligence and Export Control Section of the U.S. Department of Justice National Security Division. He focuses on cases involving cyber intrusions, as well as espionage, economic espionage, and export control violations. David also serves as a liaison to the FBI’s Cyber Division and the National Cyber Investigative Joint Task Force. David started his career as an Assistant District Attorney in Manhattan, and has worked in several national security and computer crime-related capacities within the Department of Justice.”
Commenting on this fellowship, EMCS Program Director Alan Usas said,
“I’m proud to extend a hearty congratulations to David on this impressive industry achievement. During his fellowship David will have access to very distinguished experts to pursue his study and research. Undoubtedly, his experiences in the CSIS program will benefit his EMCS Critical Challenge Project as well as enrich the perspective he brings into our courses. It’s a non-residential program, so he can continue his important work at Justice as well as EMCS. But he will be busy!”
