(USNewsMag.com) – Cybersecurity has become one of the intelligence sector’s most important priorities. Attacks on businesses and critical infrastructure have caused major problems over the last several years. For this reason, the Secret Service recently underwent big changes.
In March, the Secret Service announced Ron Green will serve as chairman of the Cyber Investigation Advisory Board (CIAB). The new chairman is a graduate of West Point. He also has an Information Assurance certificate from George Washington University and graduated from the FBI’s Domestic Security Executive Academy.
Green will now lead a 16-member team of academic, government, and industry representatives who advise the agency on the government’s response to cyber fraud and crimes. The board helps the Secret Service identify policy and tech trends, as well as cybercrimes. Green will also be in charge of offering tips on how to improve training and other priorities.
