North Texas Dining Out with Captain Paul Tortora

This event was so popular last year that we are doing it again - only earlier so more people can attend and this time with the Director of the Center for Cyber Security Studies. Spend your Cinco de Mayo and Kentucky Derby Day with us!

Get ready for our "North Texas Dining Out" event, an evening speaker event and party at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine! Our membership has supported every effort of the chapter so generously and graciously over the years that we want to share the love! So, although this will be a no-expense spared event, the chapter will shoulder the majority of the cost.

We are most excited to share that we are honored to have Captain Paul Tortora, Director of the Center for Cyber Security Studies as our special guest speaker! Captain Tortora, USN (ret), was the first Chair of the new
Cyber Science Department at the United States Naval Academy. Paul recently retired from the Navy following a 26-year active duty career as both a Nuclear Submarine Officer and a Naval Intelligence Officer. 

 During his active service he served and deployed on two nuclear fast attack submarines, two amphibious assault ships, and a nuclear aircraft carrier, conducting peacetime and combat operations across the globe. His ashore assignments included Director of Training at the Navy and Marine Corps Intelligence Training Center, on the staff of the Director of Naval Intelligence, as the Intelligence Officer and Naval Aide to the Secretary of the Navy, and on the staff of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. 

Paul is a 1989 graduate of the Naval Academy, where he majored in Mathematics, minoring in Spanish.  He holds a Masters of Science in Management from the University of Maryland, and a Masters of Arts in National Security Strategy from the Naval War College. His personal awards include the Legion of Merit, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, and the Meritorious Service Medal. He is a recipient of both the National Military Intelligence Association's Vice Admiral Rufus Taylor Award for Intelligence Leadership and the Rear Admiral Edwin T. Layton Award for outstanding leadership in Naval Intelligence. We could not be more excitied to host Captain Tortora in our city!
