Robert Carey, formerÂ principal deputy chief information officer at the Defense Department, has joined Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC) as a vice president and general manager in the company’s cybersecurity business line.
He will oversee the company’s cyber business in the public sector, CSC said Monday.
Samuel Visner, vice president and general manager for global cybersecurity at CSC, said the company appointed Carey to lead the company’s cyber work with national, homeland security and civilian agencies as “the U.S. public sector has the largest cyber customers in the world.”
Carey retired from the Pentagon in March after a 31-year career in government that concluded with nearly three-and-a-half years of service as DoD’sÂ principal deputy CIO.
In that role, he led work to consolidate and standardize the military’s information technology enterprise and further build up the Pentagon’s cyber posture.
He also served as chief information officer at the Department of the Navy for four years and is a retired Navy Reserve captain.
The 25-year reserves veteran served in active duty during the 2001 Afghanistan and 2003 Iraq wars.
