He will also apply his military and interagency leadership experience to help the unit protect commercial infrastructure of the U.S. and its allies, the company said.

Charles Beard, SVP, chief information officer and general manager of the cybersecurity unit, said in a release Lacquement’s background and leadership experience will help the unit carry out its strategy and help protect systems from cyber attacks.

In his most recent military leadership post, Lacquement served as director of operations at U.S. Cyber Command, where the company says he helped carry out its operational establishment.

He has also served as commander of the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command; director of intelligence for the multi-national coalition in Iraq; and the director of intelligence for the U.S. Southern Command.

In August, the company announced Lee Carrick would lead program development for its ISR group (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) and implement growth strategies.
