Our Leadership

The SEI Director's Office leads the SEI research program, including research in the CERT Division, and ensures the smooth, efficient operation of the SEI. Working with members of the SEI management team, Director and Chief Executive Officer Paul Nielsen builds strong, collaborative relationships with leaders in government, industry, and academia, communicating the SEI's vision for software engineering.

CERT Division leadership, similarly, works with leaders in government, industry, and academia to understand and address security challenges. CERT Technical Directors lead the research of the CERT Division's research staff.
