The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) announced that Bob Lord will join the agency as a senior technical advisor within its cybersecurity division.

“Bob’s decades of experience and unparalleled expertise will be a great asset as we further strengthen our community partnerships, expand the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative, and continue our work as the nation’s cyber defense agency to make us more resilient,” said CISA Director Jen Easterly. “Bob and I share both a passion for helping Americans stay safe online and a dedication to raising the cybersecurity baseline across the nation. I’m super excited for the creativity he’ll bring to the team.”

Lord served as the first chief security officer at the Democratic National Committee, where he worked to secure the committee, as well as help state parties and campaigns with their security programs. He previously served as the chief information security officer (CISO) at Yahoo and CISO-in-residence at Rapid 7, and before that, he led Twitter’s information security program as its first security hire.

“As we face a pivotal moment in time for cybersecurity, I’m thrilled to contribute my experience to support CISA’s efforts to reduce risk to critical infrastructure, strengthen its collaboration with industry and make basic cyber practices accessible to all Americans,” said Lord. “I look forward to joining Team CISA and helping to further the agency’s dynamic and critical mission,” said Bob Lord.
