Adam Cambridge

Manager, Enterprise Risk Intelligence


Adam Cambridge is on a mission as leader of MITRE’s Enterprise Risk Intelligence Group to strengthen risk-taking culture by empowering leaders to make rapid risk-informed decisions. Adam manages a collection of intelligence functions, including third-party due diligence, travel intelligence, counterintelligence analysis and awareness, and protective intelligence, as an element of MITRE’s broader portfolio of counterintelligence programs.

As a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Adam began his career in Army Counterintelligence, then continued public service as a civilian intelligence officer for the Department of Defense where he pioneered several cutting-edge security concepts that reduced operational risk. Adam has researched how disinformation increases risk in an already complex threat environment, culminating with his design of the “Disinformation Kill Chain.”

Adam is an active member of the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (ATAP), the Academic Security and Counter Exploitation Program (ASCE), and the International Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Analysts (IALEIA). Adam earned a B.A. in Psychology and Philosophy from the University of Maine, a certificate in Research Security Management through Texas A&M, and is completing his Master’s in Applied Intelligence focusing on Competitive Business Intelligence through Georgetown University. When not deep into a conspiracy land rabbit hole pursuing protective intelligence, Adam spends time in the woods, on his mountain bike, and with his family.
