Harry D. Raduege, Jr., is chairman of the Deloitte Center for Cyber Innovation. The Washington, D.C.-based Center focuses on developing leading cyber solutions for clients grappling with the need for secure, interoperable information systems - whether in business, government or on the battlefield.

Harry retired after serving 35 years in the U.S. military. He worked in the areas of technology, including telecommunications, space, information and network operations. He served more than 17 years in joint duty assignments. In his last position, he led Department of Defense netcentric operations as the director of the Defense Information Systems Agency. In that role, Harry directed planning, engineering and implementation of interoperable communications and intelligence systems serving the needs of the president, the secretary of defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, combatant commanders and the military services. Notably, he led efforts to restore communications to the Pentagon following the September 11 terrorist attacks; upgraded presidential communications; and led the successful expansion of the department's Global Information Grid through a $1 billion transformational communications program.

Harry was also appointed by the secretary of defense as the commander of the Joint Task Force for Global Network Operations, and as deputy commander for Global Network Operations and Defense for the U.S. Strategic Command. In these roles, he was the first commander assigned responsibility for directing the operation and defense of the Global Information Grid to ensure timely and secure netcentric capabilities across the entire department. Harry also served as the manager of the National Communications System and led the nation's efforts to prioritize the restoration of telecommunications throughout New York City and the Pentagon following the 9/11 attacks.

Prior to his last assignments, Harry directed command and control systems for North American Aerospace Defense Command, U.S. Space Command and Air Force Space Command. He also served as the chief information officer for all three commands, was the architect for computer network defense and attack capabilities established within the Department of Defense, and was the national spokesman for the department during the successful "Year 2000" computer rollover efforts. Harry directed command and control communications at the U.S. Central Command for three years, including the relocation efforts required after the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia. Earlier, he served as the first commander of the Air Force C4 Agency and was the Joint Chiefs of Staff architect for all satellite communications supporting more than 500,000 deployed military members during the Gulf War in 1991.
