He also co-directed a joint Harvard/Massachusetts Institute of Technology project on international cybersecurity policy.

Rosenbach served as national security adviser for former Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb.; staff member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence; and chief security officer for Europe's largest Internet service provider.

A former Army intelligence officer and Fulbright Scholar, Rosenbach has co-authored and co-edited several books on national security issues. He holds a law degree from Georgetown University, a master in public policy from Harvard Kennedy and bachelor of arts from Davidson College.
