NASHVILLE, TN, February 16, 2017 – Digital Reasoning, a leader in cognitive computing technology, today announced the appointment of Al Tarasiuk to its Board of Directors, effective immediately. Tarasiuk is Chief Security Officer at Deutsche Bank and was formerly the CIO of the US National Intelligence Community and the Central Intelligence Agency.

“Al Tarasiuk is a globally-recognized leader in information technology and security. He led the efforts to organize the US Intelligence Community to adopt and embrace cloud technology —  improving security by partnering with industry and making concrete strides toward sharing data to support the most urgent missions,” said Tim Estes, CEO and Founder of Digital Reasoning. “We are honored to add his wisdom, experience, and stature to our Board as we accelerate our efforts to apply artificial intelligence to the world’s most sensitive data in partnership with leaders in financial services, healthcare, and government.”

His track record of delivering against business objectives resulted in selection to the highest executive level of IT leadership in the US Intelligence Community, working with both the White House and Congress. He has held a series of global security roles at Deutsche Bank, most recently as Chief Security Officer — a newly created role that brings together information and physical security under single leader.
