Ronnie Hawkins, a retired U.S. Air Force lieutenant general and former director of the Defense Information Systems Agency, has joined the federal advisory board of San Francisco-based mobile security provider Lookout.

Hawkins will work with the Lookout executive team to inform public sector customers about potential security risks from authorized and unauthorized mobile devices in the workplace, the company said Monday.

The 37-year Air Force veteran led Fort Meade, Maryland-based DISA for three years prior to his retirement in August 2015 and in that role oversaw a team of uniformed and civilian personnel that supported the president, defense secretary, Joint Chiefs of Staff, combatant commands, other DoD components and mission partners.

He was also the first officer to lead Joint Force Headquarters-Defense Department Information Networks and reported directly to both the head of U.S. Cyber Command and Defense Department chief information officer.
