Jeff Eisensmith, chief information security officer of the Department of Homeland Security, will retire by the end of April after more than 23 years in the government, Federal News Radio reported Monday.
He has served as DHS CISO over the past five years and helped implement the department’s cybersecurity maturity model that is based on a risk management approach.
Eisensmith previously held a similar position at the department’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and worked in the private sector as director of technical operations at BAE Systems.
Earlier in his career, he served as an FBI unit chief.
The station also reported that Mike Hermus, chief technology officer of DHS, will leave the department by March 2 and be succeeded by Kevin Wince on an acting basis.
