The board assists the museum in ensuring authenticity and accuracy in its depiction of the history and tradecraft of espionage. Its members—intelligence experts, scholars and practitioners—advise on collections, program development and other issues.
“I’m humbled at this opportunity to assist the International Spy Museum given its broad reach and impactful approach to telling the multidisciplinary story of the tradecraft of spying,” Masback said. “The museum has consistently demonstrated an unwavering commitment to conveying its message through compelling, interactive exhibits and uniquely insightful programming.”
The Army’s first director of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance integration, Masback has more than 30 years of experience in national security. He has been an Army officer and senior executive civilian on the Army Staff at and at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.
Masback has been a member of the Intelligence Task Force of the Defense Science Board and currently serves on the Commerce Department’s Advisory Committee on Commercial Remote Sensing and as vice chairman of the Interior Department’s National Geospatial Advisory Committee. USGIF is a nonprofit educational foundation that promotes the tradecraft of geospatial intelligence and works to strengthen the geospatial intelligence community.
“With Keith’s expertise in geospatial intelligence, we will be able to dive further into intelligence gathering methods that are less familiar to visitors,” said museum President and Chief Operating Officer Tamara Christian.
Masback joins four other newly appointed advisory board members added in celebration of the museum’s 15th anniversary.
