McAfee Public Sector CTO To Join U.S. Department Of Homeland Security

Stocks in this article: INTC

Dr. Phyllis Schneck, McAfee's chief technology officer for public sector, was today appointed to the position of Deputy Undersecretary for Cyber Security at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Schneck has been vice president and CTO for public sector at McAfee since 2009, advising McAfee’s vibrant public sector business as well as the government affairs team. Her technical expertise is significant, yet she can translate it into terms that most people can readily understand, and she’s able to link cyber security technology and policy in ways that few people can match. These talents have made her a natural and frequent choice as a congressional witness – a fact for which McAfee is proud.

“McAfee takes great pride in the strong partnership we have with the U.S. government, and governments around the world,” said Michael DeCesare, president of McAfee. “Phyllis has long been a trusted and valued member of the McAfee team who has helped build these partnerships. We congratulate her on her appointment to the Department of Homeland Security, and we know she will do an outstanding job as Deputy Undersecretary for Cyber Security.”

In addition to her role at McAfee, Schneck also has a distinguished presence in the security and infrastructure protection community, as board chair of the National Cyber Forensics and Training Alliance, in leadership roles on the CSIS Commission to Advise the 44 th President on Cyber Security and as the vice chair of NIST’s Information Security and Privacy Advisory Board. She was also named one of Information Security Magazine’s Top 25 Women Leaders in Information Security. For eight years she was national board chair of the FBI’s InfraGard program. Schneck recently was named the Loyola University Maryland David D. Lattanze Center 2012 Executive of the Year. She holds three patents in high-performance and adaptive information security, has six research publications and earned a Ph.D. in computer science from Georgia Tech.
