Steven Hernandez, former chief information security officer at the Department of Health and Human Services‘ Office of the Inspector General, will assume the CISO role at the Education Department effective Dec. 10, Cyberscoop reported Thursday.

The report noted Hernandez will bring government information technology experience to drive integrity and privacy efforts at the Education Department and support the integration of the agency’s cyber, information security and telecommunications programs.

The department posted a USAJobs notice for the position in June, which said the CISO will also serve as director of information assurance and principal adviser to the chief information officer and deputy CIO.

Hernandez is a volunteer at the nonprofit International Information System Security Certification Consortium and has served as a board member at the Cyber Corps Association as well as vice president and vice chairman of the board for the CyberCorps Scholarship For Service association.
