Cybersecurity has become a team sport. But all participants on the field are playing without clear rules, without a team approach, and without knowing when to pass the ball or to whom.

Don Snyder is a senior physical scientist at the RAND Corporation and a professor at the Pardee RAND Graduate School. He specializes in mathematical modeling and the development and maintenance of robust, complex systems.
His recent policy areas of focus have been nuclear operations and cybersecurity. He also has extensive experience and numerous peer-reviewed publications in mathematical modeling in the physical sciences, including the mechanics of buoyant plumes, low-Reynold's number fluid mechanics, radiative heat transfer, equilibrium and nonequilibrium chemical thermodynamics, and experimental in situ micro-Raman spectroscopy at high temperatures and pressures. Snyder has mixed theoretical and experimental approaches in all of these areas of research. He has served as an ad hoc member of the U.S. Air Force Scientific Advisory Board.
Snyder received a B.A. in mathematics and B.A. in geology from Franklin and Marshall College and a Ph.D. in geology from the University of California, Berkeley.
