Trevor Rudolph, chief of the cyber and national security unit at the Office of Management and Budget, will step down from his position by the end of November to join cyber startup Whitehawk, Federal News Radio reported Monday.
Sources told the publication that Rudolph will serve as head of business operations and cybersecurity at Whitehawk and will oversee customer relations as well as provide thought leadership to the cyber industry.
Jason Miller writes Rudolph’s planned move to Whitehawk comes as the business prepares to unveil an online community that seeks to help small- and medium-sized firms build up their cybersecurity postures.
Rudolph has helped develop the Cybersecurity Strategy and Implementation Plan and Cybersecurity National Action Plan as well as create a cyber team in charge of government CyberStat reviews during his five years at OMB, Miller reports.
Prior to OMB, he spent three years as an analyst at the Treasury Department, where he authored various recommendations in support of updates to the Troubled Asset Relief Program.
Rudolph also served as a senior consultant at Kadix Systems.
