Theresa Campobasso

Theresa is the Vice President and Global Head of Defense based in Exiger’s McLean office.


Theresa joined Exiger from KPMG, where she was a Manager of Forensic Investigations. In this role, she led a new Critical Asset Protection program to help Federal clients proactively identify, mitigate, and manage risk to people, entities, and products.  She led development of a software solution to predict and assess microelectronics supply chain risk in defense technology. The solution was selected as one of three winners at the 2019 International Test Conference by the U.S. Air Force.


Previous to her software design work, Theresa supported KPMG’s Federal clients in reforming the security clearance background investigation process through piloting recommendations for incorporating Insider Threat indicators, continuous evaluation methodology, and a data-driven approach to personnel vetting.


In addition to her private sector experience, Theresa has supported various operations and exercises in the Asia Pacific region as a Marine Corps Intelligence Officer.  She provided contract counterintelligence support to DIA’s Office of Counterintelligence as an analyst for emerging technology supply chain risk, operational risk management, and acquisition risk management.
