Ferguson is currently serving as the Deputy Technical Director of the Enterprise Discovery Operations (EDO) Group in the Directorate of Operations. Dr. Ferguson brings extraordinary vision and expertise earning him a reputation for making the implausible plausible. His professionalism and dedication to the NSA mission transcends the technical and extends to his ability to mentor, develop and prepare individuals from all missions and disciplines. Dr. Ferguson’s specialties include: Machine/Deep Learning, Data Science, Big Data Analytics, Applied Statistics, and Software Engineering. PRIOR POSITIONS: Aaron began his career at NSA in 1997 tackling a wide-range of technical cybersecurity challenges. Before arriving in EDO, he was the Deputy Technical Director of the Fusion, Analysis, and Mitigations Deputy Directorate in IAD. In this role he was responsible for providing technical direction to the development and deployment of Analytics in support of Information Assurance analysis. His two most incredibly rewarding assignments were as Technical Director of the Joint Mitigation Strategy Planning Division in the NTOC and as Technical Director of the Analytic Tradecraft Office (ATAO) in IAD. He is a proud 2012 graduate of NSA’s Senior Technical Development Program (STDP) where he focused on Insider Threat Detection and Analysis. During his STDP program he completed external tours at Raytheon Systems and DoD Cyber Crime Center (DC3), both focused on designing methodologies and deploying analytic capabilities to characterize user cyber observables and predict the likelihood of a user having malicious intent.
  17. 17. Panel Member – Aaron J. Ferguson, Ph.D Deputy Technical Director, Enterprise Discovery Operations In 2006, he was selected to be a Technical Leader in the Office of Advanced Network Operations (ANO-the predecessor to IAD’s Remote and Deployed Operations Group).

He has been a member of several doctoral dissertation committees. Dr. Ferguson has a “healthy but maniacal” addiction to basketball (coaching, playing, and officiating) and spends his copious free time analyzing NBA data in preparation for his post-NSA career as an NBA Data Scientist (he hopes). Dr. Ferguson loves to bowl but is not very good. As a native New Yorker (Brooklyn), he is an unapologetic fan of the New York Yankees, Knicks, and Giants and has a special place in his heart for drivers who do not use their signal when making lane changes (smile).
