David Bottom, formerly chief information officer at the Department of Homeland Security, has assumed the same role at the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Bottom will manage the security and functionality of SEC's information technology platforms under his new position, the agency said Thursday.

Prior to his previous capacity, Bottom served as chief data officer at DHS's Office of Intelligence and Analysis and worked at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency for 10 years.

“David’s substantial experience working with complex information technology systems, including in the intelligence sector, will serve the agency well as we continue to focus on the security and operational effectiveness of our systems at the SEC,” said Jay Clayton, SEC chairman.
