Government panels tap Guida for security posts

Richard Guida, a civilian Navy executive who has been serving as associate director of the Navy's nuclear propulsion program, has just been named chairman of the federal Public Key Infrastructure steering committee and Government Information Technology Services Board's security champion.

Bruce McConnell, who has been filling in as GITSB champion since Patricia Edfors left for the private sector earlier this year, introduced the new security champion this morning in Williamsburg, Va., to the attendees of the annual training course for acquisition project leaders, GSA's Trail Boss Roundup. Guida will be housed at the Treasury Department and will be working with Jim Flyzik on security issues that arise in the CIO Council and GITSB.
