Kyo Marie Dolan ’98, G’03, ASAIC

Assistant Special Agent In Charge (ASAIC) Dolan’s career with the U.S. Secret Service spans more than 15 years. She currently serves as a senior agency representative focusing on international cyber policy. During her tenure, she has worked to enhance the four pillars encompassing the Secret Service’s cyber mission – investigations, protection, policy and intelligence. She directed surge force collaboration missions with Intelligence Community partners in direct support of cyber protective operations for Presidential visits and National Special Security Events. Most recently, ASAIC Dolan served as the Cyber Advisor on the DHS Executive Order Task Force to oversee and ensure adherence to the requirements set forth in the Cyber Executive Order 13800 titled, “Strengthening the Cybersecurity of Federal Networks and Critical Infrastructure,” signed by President Trump on May 11, 2017.

In her role as the Cyber Advisor on the DHS Executive Order Task Force, she oversaw and ensured adherence to the requirements set forth in the Cyber Executive Order 13800. ASAIC Dolan drafted language for inclusion in the Cyber Executive Order 13800 product report titled, “Enhancing the Resilience of the Internet and Communications Ecosystem Against Botnets and Other Automated, Distributed Threats” set for President Trump’s review in Spring 2018. ASAIC Dolan routinely briefs high-ranking U.S. and foreign government officials as well as private sector entities relating to cyber investigative and protective policy. She reviews and draft responses to Departmental and interagency policy inquiries on a daily basis on behalf of Secret Service senior leadership. In serving as an essential member of the 3-person team that developed the Critical Systems Protection (CSP) Program, ASAIC Dolan and her team drafted the inaugural policy directives for inclusion in the U.S. Secret Service Official Manual in 2012. The CSP Program has been emulated world-wide as it is deemed as the leader in cyber protection programs. As such, ASAIC Dolan has traveled on invitation to assist foreign governments in developing parallel cyber security protection programs.

ASAIC Dolan developed the cyber protection assessment methodology for the CSP Program’s daily protective visits and procedures for Critical Infrastructure Protection Subcommittee leadership for DHS-designated Major Events, such as National Special Security Events (e.g. Presidential Inauguration, DNC, RNC, etc). While managing the CSP Program, ASAIC Dolan enhanced its capabilities by cultivating essential interagency partnerships with the Intelligence Community and Department of Defense components to further enhance the Secret Service’s ability to combat the enhancing cyber threat to our protective mission as well as the nation’s critical infrastructure. This required continuous review of intelligence reporting to effectively manage resources for the CSP Program’s network monitoring and sensor deployment platform. The trusted information sharing partnership allowed the CSP Program to proactively address the evolving cyber threat targeting Secret Service protectees and protective venues. ASAIC Dolan collaborated with the Executive Office of the President to develop the first joint Computer Network Defense platform to monitor critical services and networks at the White House Complex.

ASAIC Dolan served as a member of the Secret Service’s Electronic Crimes Task Force (ECTF) in Washington, DC; as a Network Intrusion investigator, Computer Forensic Examiner and Mobile Device Forensic Examiner. She conducted hundreds of forensic examinations in direct support of the Secret Service’s dual cyber investigative and protective mission. ASAIC Dolan received commendation awards from the Secret Service, U.S. Department of Justice and the private sector for successful investigation and prosecution of significant crimes and emerging threats.
