FDIC Ramps Up CISO Search

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation looks for a new chief information security officer to oversee information technology security activities across the agency.

A USAJobs notice posted Oct. 26 says the CISO will oversee and direct security programs involving FDIC’s IT infrastructure and communications systems as well as agency and personnel data.

The selected candidate will take the place of acting FDIC CISO Noreen Padilla, who took over the role after former CISO Howard Whyte was appointed chief information officer in October.

The incumbent will also play a role in strategic and workforce planning, budget control, policy and standards development, architecture and infrastructure planning, auditing and resource, knowledge and information security management.

FDIC’s notice added the CISO will be part of the CIO’s management team and is tasked to support agency executives and business unit managing directors and represent the agency at executive-level meetings with other federal agencies and private sector organizations.

FDIC is an independent U.S. government agency that works to insure bank deposits and foster public confidence in the U.S. financial system.

The position is open through Nov. 13.
