The Homeland Security Department continues to shift cybersecurity oversight chairs.

Suzanne Spaulding is the new deputy undersecretary for the department’s National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD), according to an email from Rand Beers, DHS under secretary of NPPD, obtained by Federal News Radio.

Spaulding replaces Phil Reitinger, who left June 3. Reitinger joined Sony as its chief information security officer in August.

“Suzanne brings a wealth of experience, having spent nearly 25 years working on national security issues in the public and private sectors,” Beers wrote in the email to staff. “As deputy undersecretary, Suzanne will focus on efforts to reduce risk and enhance the resiliency of critical infrastructure, secure federal facilities, and advance identity management and verification.”
