Jonathan Alboum, former chief information officer at the Agriculture Department, has joined Veritas Technologies as chief technology officer of the Mountain View, California-based data management company’s public sector business.
Veritas said Tuesday Alboum will aim to help government clients manage, secure and identify business value from data on premises or in multicloud environments.
In his previous capacity, he led USDA’s efforts to migrate IT systems to a cloud infrastructure, modernize networks and protect information at the department.
He previously served as associate CIO for enterprise governance and planning at the General Services Administration and as deputy CIO at GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service.
Alboum worked as a management consultant for PwC and Ventera before he joined the federal government.
