Government contractors are looking to beef up their cybersecurity outfits. And Deloitte proved itself ahead of the pack as it announced the hiring of former Federal Aviation Administration Chief Information Security Officer Col. Michael F. Brown to head a division in its cyber operations Oct. 4, according to Nextgov.

Brown, whose resume in addition to work at FAA includes chief information officer for the Army National Guard, will take over as a senior manager in Deloitte’s federal technology-risk practice.

“My service with the FAA and other government agencies has shown me the importance of strategic cyber solutions,” Brown said, according to FierceGovernmentIT.  “I am honored to add my experience and knowledge to Deloitte’s federal government team and clients, and am excited to bring the firm’s outstanding cybersecurity solutions to even more areas of the federal government.”
