US-CERT director resigns

U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team Director (US-CERT) Randy Vickers has resigned, Federal News Radio reported after obtaining an internal Homeland Security Department email.

The email said that Vickers’ resignation is effectively immediately and that US-CERT Deputy Director Lee Rock will serve as acting director. No reason was provided as to why Vickers is resigning, according to the report.

US-CERT is the operational arm of the National Cyber Security Division at DHS and works to improve the nation’s cybersecurity position by coordinating cyber information sharing and managing cyber risks.
