Danny Toler, deputy assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security’s cybersecurity and communications office, will retire by the end of August after nearly four decades in government service, Federal News Radio reported Tuesday.
Jeanette Manfra will take over as assistant secretary at the cyber and communications office on a full-time basis, Toler said in an email obtained by the station.
He joined DHS in 2012 as deputy chief of federal network resilience and became director for network security deployment in 2014 before assuming the role of deputy assistant secretary at the cyber office in 2016.
Prior to DHS, he spent 13 years at the State Department where he held the roles of division chief of network engineering and design and director of the enterprise network management office.
He worked at the now defunct U.S. Information Agency for seven years as branch chief for networks.
