President Donald Trump intends to nominate Karen Evans, national director of the U.S. Cyber Challenge, as assistant secretary for cybersecurity, energy security and emergency response at the Energy Department.

She currently leads the public-private program designed to help address a skills gap in the cybersecurity field, the White House said Tuesday.

Evans initially joined the federal government as a General Schedule-2 employee before she was assigned to DOE as the department’s chief information officer.
