Imran Umar is a cyber leader spearheading Booz Allen’s zero trust practice. With an extensive background supporting commercial, Department of Defense, and federal civilian clients, Imran provides technical solutions that enable organizations to move towards a resilient zero trust architecture.
Along with zero trust, Imran advances the adoption and fusion of machine learning and artificial intelligence to improve cyber resiliency at an enterprise scale. Using concepts such as zero trust network access (ZTNA) and zero trust application access (ZTAA), he and his team of cybersecurity analysts determine an organization’s current zero trust maturity status, identify key gaps in architecture, and develop tailored solutions to transition them towards a data-centric security model that enforces least privileged access.
Imran has a master’s in information and telecommunication systems, with a focus on cybersecurity, from Johns Hopkins University, and a bachelor’s from George Mason University.
