DHS Announces John Streufert as the New Director of its National Cybersecurity Division

Posted By Mark Weatherford, Deputy Under Secretary for Cybersecurity

The DHS Office of Cybersecurity and Communications (CS&C) today announced the appointment of John Streufert as the new Director of its National Cybersecurity Division. Streufert comes from the Department of State where he served as the Chief Information Security Officer and Deputy Chief Information Officer for Information Assurance.

In his new role, John will continue to build and maintain an effective national cyberspace response system and implement a cyber-risk management program for the protection of critical infrastructure, such as dams and transportation. He will also work to maintain and strengthen our collaborations with public, private and international entities to secure the nation’s critical cyber infrastructure.

John comes to DHS with a broad range of experience in cybersecurity and innovation. At the Department of State, he helped oversee its work to become the first agency to implement the Trusted Internet Connection Initiative and the EINSTEIN Program – a cyber intrusion detection system.

We welcome John as part of DHS’ cybersecurity team.
