GRIMM Adds "Hack the Pentagon" Creator and DoD Vet to Leadership Team

GRIMM expands its strong leadership team to address government and commercial growth by welcoming Lisa Wiswell as a Principal.


GRIMM, a leader in security engineering, announced the addition of Lisa Wiswell as Principal for Security Consulting this week further filling out its team of former Government heavy-hitters and industry experts.

“We look for people who are game-changers,” said Bryson Bort, Founder and CEO of GRIMM.  “She has an impeccable track record of pitching and launching innovative ideas and with working with the hacker and security communities.  She’s a great complement to our team.”

Wiswell spent the past decade working with the Department of Defense (DoD) to shift its culture, and interact more positively with the hacker community. Most recently, she successfully launched “Hack the Pentagon” - the first ever federal bug bounty and disclosure program so security researchers, unaffiliated with the Government, could submit any information about DoD vulnerabilities - from within the Office of the Secretary of Defense.  Prior to that, she served as an Obama Administration appointee in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, responsible for formulating and implementing policies and strategies associated with U.S. warfighters ability to operate in and through cyberspace, and at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop capabilities for military personnel to use for purposes of deterrence or warfighting.  

“Working with truly talented and forward-leaning engineers is important to me.  That’s why I chose GRIMM” said Wiswell.  “I’m excited to be part of a team that is going to push the envelope and build game-changing technologies for the Government and the private sector.”
