President

McIndoe Risk Advisory LLC

Bruce McIndoe has been a visionary and serial entrepreneur in the national security, intelligence, and operational risk management space for global organizations over the last four decades. In 1982, Bruce was founder and CEO of Communications & Systems Specialists, Inc. (CSSi) that became a key player in providing intelligence collection and processing solutions as well as capabilities in the COMSEC/INFOSEC arena for the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Intelligence Community (IC). CSSi was a Inc. 500 and four-time Washington Technology FAST 50 company. While at CSSi, Bruce was deeply involved in open source information exploitation which led to the IC’s evolution of the Intelink network. He also was engaged in the development of the Regional SIGINT Operations Center (RSOC) concept. In 1995, CSSi was sold to Nichols Research Corporation (subsequently acquired by Computer Sciences Corporation) where Bruce remained as a corporate VP leading the Nichols INFOTEC unit delivering SAP and other enterprise solutions.

In 1999, Bruce founded B2B Web Solutions continuing to support enterprise clients on their digital transformation journey as the Internet was rapidly evolving. In October 1999, the idea of providing intelligence to travelers based on their itinerary and personal profile came to fruition. This idea was one of the few venture capital-funded in 2000 after the Dot-com crash and became iJET International, Inc. Under Bruce’s leadership iJET was broadened to focus on open-source intelligence reporting for people and global operations. iJET was the first to stand up a 24×7 Global Watch Operations Center. Through four regional intelligence operations centers based on the DoD RSOC model, it proved near real-time incident and intelligence reporting. A Daily Intelligence Briefing was augmented with global standing intelligence across 10 operational categories and strategic reporting on new or evolving threats. Key to the success of iJET was the Worldcue® intelligence platform that automated the dissemination of intelligence relevant to an organization based on its asset profile and specifically to the people that needed to know based on their personal profile. In 2002, iJET acquired Kroll Information Service (KINS) and in 2003, Pinkerton Global Information Service (PGIS), to become the leading provider of operational risk intelligence to global organizations. In 2018, after a series of acquisitions, iJET was rebranded WorldAware and became the leading operational risk management intelligence and technology platform before it was sold to GardaWorld in 2020.

In April 2020, Bruce founded his namesake risk advisory company helping organizations institutionalize their learnings from the pandemic and achieve Agile Operational Resiliency based on a Continuous Risk Management Model protecting people, facilities, supply and information assets.

Bruce received a BS in Physics from Allegheny College and holds an MS in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins University. He is an adjunct professor at the University of Maryland Global Campus.
