James Onusko, a 15-year civil service veteran, has joined the special services subsidiary of LexisNexis Risk Solutions as director of federal strategy. He will be responsible for developing national security programs and platforms at LexisNexis Special Services Inc. as the company aims to expand its insider threat, security and continuous evaluation offerings in the government market, LexisNexis said Wednesday.
Previously, Onusko served as facilities, security and emergency management acting director at the Office of Personnel Management and as transition team leader for OPM’s National Background Investigations Bureau, where he helped equip the emerging agency in support of federal insider threat operations. He also held personnel security management roles at the departments of Veterans Affairs and State.
Haywood Talcove, CEO of the government business at LexisNexis and CEO of LSSI, said Onuske has helped improve the U.S. security clearance system and will support the company in efforts to provide tailored data services to government clients. Onuske spent more than 20 years at the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations before he joined the federal government.
