Richard Guida, longtime champion of security within federal agencies, will
be leaving government at the end of the year to move to the private sector.
Guida served in government for 28 years, most recently as security champion
on the Government Information Technology Services Board and chairman of
the Federal Public Key Infrastructure Steering Committee, based at the Treasury
This year, he won a Federal 100 award from Federal Computer Week for his
work to help develop and implement PKI solutions for agencies trying to
secure the services they are moving to the World Wide Web.
Having started out in the armed services, Guida said he is looking to the
private sector for his next job. A replacement on the steering committee
should be named by the end of the summer, he said.
