Brody to lead Energy cybersecurity

Bruce Brody, the cybersecurity chief at the Department of Veterans Affairs, is moving to the Energy Department to help that agency toughen its security against viruses and hacker attacks. Brody is expected to start his new job as associate chief information officer for cybersecurity in mid-July. He is widely credited with helping the VA move from having a poorly secured cyber environment to having one of the best security plans in government, according to Robert McFarland, the VA’s CIO. “Although we have a long way to go, Bruce has helped us develop a solid plan that will ultimately allow us to secure the VA and better serve our veterans,” McFarland said in an internal staff memo June 16. Pedro Cadenas Jr. will become VA’s acting cyber- and information security chief, according to McFarland. Full Story
