Ann Barron-DiCamillo, the retiring director of the Department of Homeland Security‘s U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team, plans to establish a cybersecurity venture firm with partners to finance cyber technologies, FCW reported Friday.
Kellermann will serve as CEO, Thomas as chief operating officer and Barron-DiCamillo as chief technology officer, the report said.
“All three of us have cyber operational backgrounds, and I think having a venture capital group that’s run by actual cyber operators is really unique and is a differentiator,” Barron-DiCamillo told FCW.
Strategic Cyber Ventures will draw funding from private equity sources and cover international markets such as Britain and Israel, Lyngaas reports.
“I think there are some great technologies that are coming out of both of those domestic spaces that fit in with what I see as… growth areas for cyber,” Barron-DiCamillo said.
