Johnson was instrumental in boosting the company’s cybersecurity defenses last year by focusing on the resiliency of its internal systems. He then applied that experience to help meet the security challenges of government customers.
Education is another key focus for Johnson. He is chairman of the advisory board for Montgomery County, Md., Public Schools’ National Academy of IT, which introduces students to career opportunities in the digital workforce. He also was lead advocate for Lockheed Martin’s Cyber University and worked to establish IT security curricula and degree programs at the college level.
