Danny Toler, deputy director of federal network resilience at the Department of Homeland Security‘s Office of Cybersecurity and Communications, will succeed Brendan Goode as director of network security deployment, Federal News Radio reported Friday.
Toler will replace Goode after heading FNR’s procurement, continuous diagnostics and mitigation and FISMA reporting activities.
Toler also previously worked at the State Department as information resource management director at the Office of Enterprise Network Management.
Goode, who oversaw NSD’s National Cybersecurity Protection System and its DHS Level 1 acquisition program, will leave DHS on Nov. 21 to work in the private sector.
“Brendan has served as an exemplary manager and leader, ably implementing shifts in program strategy and ensuring that one of our major acquisition programs remained on-cost in a constrained budget environment,” Assistant Secretary for CS&C Andy Ozment said in an email that the station obtained.
Ozment said in the email that Ron Austin, head of FNR’s integrated cyber services segment, will serve as acting FNR deputy director following Toler’s move.
