Speaker: Fred Burton

Fred Burton has seen it all. As a 14-year veteran counterterrorism agent with the the U.S. State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service, he’s served on the front line in high-profile investigations like the hunt for and arrest of Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind behind the first World Trade Center bombing; the 1988 crash of PAK-1 that killed U.S. Ambassador Arnold Raphel and Pakistani President Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq; and the search for Americans kidnapped by Hezbollah in Beirut, Lebanon.

His best-selling novels include his personal memoir GHOST: Confessions of a Counterterrorism Agent,  Chasing Shadows: A Special Agent’s Lifelong Hunt to Bring a Cold War Assassin to Justice, Under Fire: The Untold Story of the Attack in Benghazi and his fourth book, Beirut Rules: The Murder of a CIA Station Chief and Hezbollah’s War Against America.

Burton also consults with Fortune 500 companies on global security developments and how to keep their personnel and business assets around the world safe as Chief Security Officer at Stratfor, a geopolitical intelligence firm. He also serves on the board of the Center for Mass Violence Response Studies and is an active member of the Greater Austin Crime Commission.
