Michael Johnson, Energy Department chief information officer, has left the agency following an almost two-year stint with the organization, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday.
Steven Norton writes Robbie Green, principal deputy CIO for enterprise information resources management, has been named interim CIO following Johnson’s departure.
A spokesperson from the DOE told the Journal Johnson, a former assistant director for intelligence programs and national security systems in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, was originally set to end his stint with the agency on Jan. 20, 2017.
Johnson led cybersecurity, cyber enterprise integration, enterprise information resources management, cyber supply chain risk management and DOE-HQ information technology operations of the department.
He has more than 25 years worth of experience on cybersecurity, information sharing and safeguarding, intelligence and national continuity policy from his stints with the Department of Homeland Security, Sandia National Laboratories and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
