Bryan Ware, assistant secretary for cyber, infrastructure and resilience policy at the Department of Homeland Security, has been appointed to hold a significant cybersecurity-focused role within the department, Fedscoop reported Sunday.
He would succeed Jeanette Manfra as assistant director for cybersecurity of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, sources say. Ware holds decades of industry experience, having formerly served as chief technology officer and CEO of security analytics firm Haystax.
He first joined DHS in 2018 to provide advisory support to Kirstjen Nielsen, the department's secretary at the time. Manfra is stepping down from her CISA role for a return to the industry.
