Meet Our Founder

Cheryl Tyler, CEOWith more than 25 years’ experience in the security, intelligence and risk assessment industry, Cheryl L. Tyler has developed an expertise in logistical advance, investigative skills, intelligence threat and risk assessment and analysis, and criminal investigations.As a Special Agent with the United States Secret Service, Ms. Tyler was a training instructor at the Secret Service Academy and the first woman of color assigned to the Presidential Protective Division, where she served on protective duty for Presidents George H. W. Bush and William Jefferson Clinton. She conducted hours of logistical advance work for world leaders’ visits to the United States, events in private and public venues for Presidents, Vice Presidents and dignitaries here and abroad. She has worked with international government officials, CEOs, celebrity entertainers, sports figures, and more.

Following the September, 11, 2001 attacks, Ms. Tyler joined forces with several colleagues in the security and intelligence community to work for the newly formed Transportation Security Administration (TSA), where she served as a special Agent in the Office of Internal Affairs and Office of Inspection. While at TSA, Ms. Tyler utilized her training and security expertise to play an integral role in security compliance and airport testing. She is versed in various types of advance technical security equipment, which she used to address the myriad, complicated security challenges confronted daily by our nation’s airports. She has supervised and coordinated numerous covert test teams throughout the U.S., and coordinated and developed budget analysis for testing programs in excess of $1 million.

Ms. Tyler also served as the office liaison representative between critical departments within TSA, including General Counsel and Procurement, and the business community – a vital role in the relationship between the TSA, the Office of Investigations and other entities. As the office liaison representative, Ms. Tyler oversaw the development of partnerships and joint operations with stakeholders that netted a savings of more than $1.8 million in less than nine months. Under her supervision, theft was down, profits were up and joint ventures continue today.

Building on her success in logistical operations, Ms. Tyler later served as a Program Manager in the Office of Internal Affairs/Operations Section for U.S. Customs and Border Protection. There, she was responsible for the day-to-day logistics and coordination of more than 100 field investigations personnel across the nation.

Ms. Tyler continues to be uniquely suited and highly sought after to provide individuals and government entities with security, risk assessment, training, event planning, and management.  She is also a frequent guest lecturer at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland.
