"Mansur Hasib is the 'Peter Drucker' of Cyber Security Leadership - After many years in various executive roles ranging from CIO, CISO and Board Advisor I was absolutely impressed with the executive guidance and thought leadership of Mansur Hasib. I was truly amazed with the ideas, concepts, executive guidance, and mentorship of how to be a highly effective leader for the C-Suite. Mansur has a very brilliant mind, yet the type of leader that everyone aspires to be a “servitude” type of leader. Mansur delivers executive maturity and political savviness to elevate anyone’s career that takes the time to listen or read this outstanding book." - Todd Bell, CISO, Board Advisor, Cybersecurity Expert.


"Dr. Mansur Hasib ... has authored a book in which he explains what an organization needs to know to implement cybersecurity governance." Council of Graduate Schools Testimony at the US Senate Appropriations Committee Meeting, April 29, 2014.


"...The dynamic of his classroom was so different than any class I've had. He is paving the way for future CEO's CISO's and entrepreneurs and is making a direct positive impact for cybersecurity students. Even though my background is not very technical, I was able to fully comprehend and excel in his classroom. Great class, strongly recommend his teaching..." - Sarah Purdum - Graduate student of cybersecurity at UMBC.


"I've had the pleasure of taking Dr. Hasib's class and learning about both Cybersecurity Management and Ethical Leadership. In an ever changing field, there are certain principles that we can apply consistently. Dr. Hasib covers these principles and does it in a way that (is) easy to learn and understand. He has a great passion for his work and it shows in both his teaching styles and writing. I'd strongly suggest anyone within the Cybersecurity field to read his book. Whether you are a CEO or the technical support, this gives a thorough overview of an entire organization. If you are management, the ethical leadership portion helps build a strong community within an organization." - B. Avery Greene - Graduate student of cybersecurity at UMBC.

His ability to engage everyone in the class made for an inviting and engrossing class each week, and look forward to the opportunity of attending his lectures in the future." - David Becker, CFM, Project Manager at National Cancer Institute

Even though no one in the audience was a cybersecurity scholar, everyone understood what he said and everyone agreed with his definition of cybersecurity and how it applies in healthcare. I found his ideas and work to be very strategic and of very high quality.

I recommend this book highly to everyone." - Eric Schwartz, Executive Director at Advena World, LLC

I would strongly recommend Dr. Hasib to speak at any conference as he is truly an amazing speaker." - Xavier Richards - Director of Graduate Recruitment at Capitol College


"I worked for Mansur at Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant as a student right after graduating high school in 1994. At the time his group was responsible for, among other things, managing Novell servers distributed throughout the complex. Today, 16 year later, I can say that he had a significant impact on my career. Mansur was a leader, a manager, and a mentor. He knew how to inspire his team, he knew how to work with people, and he was especially good with coaching and mentoring the students. He took the time to eat lunch with us, explain the technology to us, and in general prepare us for careers in IT. But the one character trait that defines Mansur is integrity. He used to say, “Once integrity is lost, it can never be regained,” and he was always honest, fair, and kind to the students. He also has a great personality and is a lot of fun to work with. Thanks again Mansur for taking the time to mentor students fresh out of high school." - Chris Mann, Kuali Student Curriculum Management Implementation Lead at University of Maryland


"Working with Mansur at Constellation Power Source was one of the highlights of my career. His excellence helped set the bar for my own professional development.

He is a true leader, team player and strategic planner who leads by example and generously shares his time and extensive knowledge to mentor others to success." - Celeste Revander-Brown, Business Intelligence and Analysis Solution Provider

"If it were not for Mansur, the University of Maryland Advisory Council for Nuclear Cybersecurity would not exist or be the success it has become. His grassroots campaigning and willingness to explore new areas of focus for the university as an augment to the Maryland Cyber Center initiative made all the difference. Mansur is an out-of-the box thinker, a great leader, and I am honored to know him." - George Simonds, Director, Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Protection Programs


"Mansur is the kind of manager people dream of working with and for. His expertise is exceptional but it is his collaborative manner and high integrity which sets him apart from the masses. A great advocate for teamwork and team development, he conducts and faciliates work sessions and draws out the best in people so they want to perform their best. A gentle soul, he gets the highest marks from me for truly understanding the meaning behind the theory of "Meaningful Leadership". Anyone working with or for him has a role model and a mentor of the highest quality." - Kate Van Name, Chief Operating Officer at Advisors Financial, Inc.


"Mansur is a fantastic person to work with. He has particular strengths in relationship building and communications skills, and demonstrated these talents in working together with me and other colleagues to help establish new partnerships in nuclear cybersecurity. He has a great, positive team-first approach to his work, and would be an asset to any organization." - Tim Shortall, Director Transmission Facilities and Operations at Penn State University


​"Mansur is a great leader of people. He takes pride in his team and makes great efforts to capitalize on the current skills of his employees. While making good use of employees skills is important, he also promotes collaboration to help foster team work and cross-training. While working with him for the last eight years I directly benefited by his leadership and mentoring, and I am truly stronger because of this." - Collin Smith, IT Security Administrator at Carroll Community College

​"... He did a fantastic job for us in building world class network and server infrastructure with exceptional security and redundancy. What is exceptional is that he was able to do all of this with much less resources than would be expected. He has also done a great job of mentoring his staff and developing them professionally and representing UMBI with the State and the various University System of Maryland institutions. Finally, he is an intelligent and worldly professional who is a pleasure to work with. I recommend him highly." - Daniel Reznikov, CFO at Aeras

I highly recommend Mansur for his leadership qualities as he leads by example and is very direct and articulate when communicating to other leaders." - Jerry King, Vice President, Information Systems, Constellation Power Source
