Mr. Chaillan comes to the company with over 22 years of international technology, entrepreneurial, and management experience spanning both the public and private sectors. While at DHS, he designed Cyber.gov, the new robust, innovative, and holistic ".gov" cybersecurity architecture that sought to mitigate cyber threats. Chaillan created and deployed the largest Zero Trust implementation in the U.S. government and brought DevSecOps DoD-wide, saving 100 years of time within 18 months and billions of taxpayer dollars. Nicolas has extensive experience securing complex networks and driving innovative digital transformation.

Cybeats unique approach allows device manufacturers to develop, bake-in security and maintain secure and protected devices in a timely and cost-efficient manner, ”said Nicolas Chaillan, Special Advisor.

At the U.S. Air Force, Mr. Chaillan was responsible for establishing force-wide DevSecOps capabilities and best practices, including continuous Authority to Operate processes and faster streamlined technology adoption.
On February 25, 2022, Mr. Chaillan, are curring guest of Fox News, joined to discuss cybersecurity dynamics amidst the escalating war in Ukraine. Nicolas outlined key strategies and focuses for the U.S. in prevention and mitigation of cyber risks that extend beyond just the Ukrainian region. Efforts to de-escalate must include an acute awareness and substantial push to fortify the U.S. cybersecurity defenses of its critical infrastructure.
Further to the emphasis on cyber defence of critical infrastructure, European Central Bank warned several euro-zone banking institutions to step up their cyberattack defenses amid the escalating Russia-Ukraine war2. In some cases, state-sponsored cyber operations against critical infrastructure organizations have specifically targeted operational technology and industrial control systems networks with destructive malware3. The CSA notes that state-sponsored advanced persistent threat (APT) actors have also demonstrated sophisticated tradecraft and cyber capabilities by compromising third-party infrastructure and software, or developing and deploying custom malware. As Nicolas has discussed publicly for many years, Cyberspace has become one of the key components of geopolitics. If the current Russia-Ukraine war continues to escalate, one can expect Russian cyber threats to increase in operation.
Mr. Nicolas Chaillan was appointed as the first Air Force and Space Force Chief Software Officer under Dr. William Roper, the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics in Arlington, Virginia. He was also the co-lead for the Department of Defense Enterprise DevSecOps Initiative with the Department of Defense Chief Information Officer. As the Air Force’s senior software czar, Mr. Chaillan was responsible for enabling Air Force programmes in the transition to Agile and DevSecOps to establish force-wide DevSecOps capabilities and best practices, including continuous authority to operate processes and faster streamlined technology adoption.
