Top Energy Department official stepping down

Gil Vega

Gil Vega will take an unspecified financial-services position.

Gil Vega, the Energy Department's assistant CIO for cybersecurity and chief information security officer, is leaving his post for a private sector position.

Vega is heading to the New York City area, closer to his New Jersey roots, sometime in mid-August for an undisclosed job in the financial services industry, he told FCW on July 30.

Vega has been at DOE for two years. Prior to that, he was the chief information security officer for Immigration and Customs Enforcement in the Homeland Security Department. He also has held cybersecurity leadership roles in the Defense Department and intelligence community.

Paul Cunningham, deputy associate CIO for cybersecurity at DOE, will take over on an interim basis until a permanent replacement is found, Vega said.

A huge exodus of top-flight cyber expertise from the USG lately. I'm afraid for our country and I hope Congress is happy about declaring war on our civil servants.
