Former U.S. Transportation Security Administration
Hans Miller is the co-founder and former CEO of Airside, a software company specializing in privacy-centric digital identity for sensitive use cases. Miller’s involvement with homeland security dates to the days immediately after the September 11, 2001 attacks, when he joined the nascent effort to build the U.S. Transportation Security Administration as one of the agency’s first hires. In the ensuing years, he served in multiple executive roles at TSA and later advised senior leaders at additional DHS components on security strategies and innovation. He has co-led several milestone developments in aviation security over the past two decades. These developments include better TSA checkpoint design, streamlined selectee screening, use of machine learning for incident analysis, web-based link analysis, anomaly detection techniques, the U.S. standard for mobile boarding passes, U.S. mobile passport control, and digital I.D. for checkpoints and baggage check. Miller began his career at McKinsey & Company after earning degrees from Harvard University, the Georgetown School of Foreign Service, and the Wharton School.
