Welcome to this episode of Lessons from the Cockpit! There is one thing all US service members promise to their comrades in arms... we leave no one behind! In early March of 2002 coalition forces began military operations in the Shahi-Khot Valley of Afghanistan, known now as Operation Anaconda. The start of this operation did not go well. On 4 March 2002 then Captian Chris Russell, an F-15E Strike Eagle Weapons System Operator, and his pilot Captain Kirk Reichkoff flying as TWISTER 52 took off at midnight from a base near Kuwait City on what became a very long and exhausting sortie. Chris shares with us his lessons learned while covering the downing of a 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment MH-47 Chinook, and the rescue and recovery of SEAL Team MAKO 30 and Petty Officer Neil Roberts after he fell off the helicopter. This is the famous Battle of Roberts Ridge. Chris was kind enough to send me the cockpit tapes from their F-15E flight lead TWISTER 51. I've included three clips from the cockpit audio in this episode towards the end. The video taken and commentated on by the MQ-1 Predator Unmanned Aerial Vehicle during the Battle of Roberts Ridge was used for awarding USAF Tech Sgt Chapman his Medal of Honor, the only MOH engagement recorded. A 15-minute interview with Medal of Honor recipient Navy SEAL Senior Chief Britt Slabinski describing the battle atop Robert's Ridge is found here. This episode of Lessons from the Cockpit is sponsored by Tanker Pilot: Lessons from the Cockpit. Prints of the F-15E Strike Eagle Captain Russell was flying on 4 March 2002 and The Bold Tigers flagship which participated in the opening of Operation Enduring Freedom can be purchased at Wall Pilot. Please share this and all previous twenty episodes with family and friends found on my website markhasara.com. Thanks for listening to the Lessons from the Cockpit podcast!

Connect with Chris on Twitter or LinkedInEpisode Highlights: 00:00 - Background and First CISO Role Hard to leave CriticalStart / CyberOne Personal interest in blockchain and FinTech 3:03 - Path into Cybersecurity Cybersecurity is second career First career was in Intelligence - really enjoyed it, did meaningful and exciting work oversees Learned Arabic at Defense Language Institute Was in Middle East as long as they could keep me there Getting into Systems (human operations - debriefings, extracting information from people) was easy for him. He had an 'a-ha' moment that this is where it's at - Information Systems. He hit the books, self-studied, went back to school with GI bill - went through courses, spinning stuff up and tinkering to have enough of a background to function. Had basic networking skills and sensitized to it already. Got his Masters 5:59 - First Job at AT&T Low paying, but learned a lot in networkingCould make his own Cat 5 and troubleshoot a network to round out his background 6:18 - First Engineering Role in Cybersecurity Still felt like I knew nothing Stayed late, constant research, networking, put in the effort early on His military background helped him with the detect part and making it make sense to the right people - being able to articulate. Mentoring - he created a mind map with all the different stuff you can do in cybersecurity. Start with Security Engineer, then into Security Architect, then Cloud Architect, then pivot into leadership, for example. If goal is to be a CISO - yes, you can get there from Analyst 14:53 - Using Intuition in Cybersecurity (is he going to host a podcast on this topic soon)? "This is something near and dear to my heart - I feel like I get data from things and situations on a different frequency than most and can quickly address problems."In Intelligence this was invaluable and it helped him get a lot of success there In cybersecurity it's not much different - there's a lot of people like this - we have quirkiness and different personalities in cyber, high on IQ side and they have high intuition - they just know where to go and look for problems and answers. It's not something out of the text book. 33:25 - Parting Thoughts and Fear I am on the low end of the fear scale - try and take my energy and be proactive vs. worry. On a scale of 1-10, I hover at a 3. I have times where I have to remind myself to relax and I creep up to a 6 or 7. In a leadership level, bring a sense of calm - keep everyone focused and calm on the mission. As much as I understand why the fear factor is high right now, I choose to stay focused on a 3 and be proactive.
