linkedin Matthew Johnson – Chief Executive Officer

Matthew grew up in San Diego, CA, and shortly after high school, moved to Israel to serve in the Israel Defense Forces. For six years, Matthew was a student of the latest techniques of the security and counter-terrorism industry from the IDF and the U.S. and Israeli governments. Throughout his service in the IDF, Matthew became a non-commissioned officer, deployed in multiple combat operations, and lead a sniper team deployed on the Lebanese border before being honorably discharged. Following the completion of his military service, Matthew was employed by the U.S. government to provide security for diplomats stationed at the embassy in Israel. The subsequent training he received combined decades of U.S. and Israeli Government security knowledge in assessing, evaluating, and mitigating threats on a local, national, and international scale. The accompanying field experience he accumulated throughout the years provided an irreplaceable foundation for the establishment of Cohen Security, and Matthew is proud to be able to share his expertise to create a safer community.
