Christopher Young is Chief Executive Officer of McAfee, LLC. He works side by side with the industry’s best and brightest to protect all that matters through leading-edge cybersecurity.
In 2014, Young joined Intel and later led the initiative to spin out McAfee, one of the largest, pure-play cybersecurity brands in the world. As a standalone company, McAfee has a clear mission and roadmap for the future to drive limitless innovation, securely.
Under Young’s leadership, McAfee protects mission-critical systems and data for nine of 10 Fortune 100 firms and is in more than two-thirds of the Global 2000. Governments and organizations of every size also rely on McAfee, as do nearly 300 million consumers.
Young serves as a member of the President’s National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee, which advises the U.S. government on national security and emergency preparedness. He also helped establish the non-profit Cyber Threat Alliance, a group of companies that share threat intelligence, and he currently serves on its board.
Young also serves on the Board of Directors of Snap Inc. He holds a Bachelor’s degree (cum laude) from Princeton University and a Master’s in Business Administration with distinction from the Harvard Business School.
