An expert on U.S. national security, Prof. Quattrocki is retired from the Senior Executive Service with 19 years of operational experience.

In this role, he worked on counterintelligence policy, intelligence policy for the Global War on Terrorism, intelligence and security policy in homeland security matters, U.S. government policy in matters of classification and declassification, and U.S. intelligence community transformation and re-engineering.
