Defense Secretary Leon Panetta recently announced the appointment of Eric B. Rosenbach as the DoD’s deputy assistant secretary of defense for cyber policy. Resenbach, a faculty affiliate at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard, previously served as principal global cyber security practice lead for Good Harbor Consulting in Washington, D.C.
Rosenbach worked as a staffer for former Senator Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) and served as an active-duty military intelligence officer, supporting post-conflict operations in the Balkans. For his service as commander, he received the Meritorious Service Medal.
Rosenbach replaces Robert Butler who left the agency earlier this year.
