Deloitte & Touche LLP has nabbed the former Federal Aviation Administration cybersecurity chief to expand its threat intelligence business, officials at the consulting company announced on Tuesday.
Col. Michael F. Brown, who had been FAA's chief information security officer since 2001, will now serve as a senior manager in Deloitte's federal technology risk practice, a division that designs strategies for risk management and cybersecurity.
"The addition of Col. Michael Brown shows Deloitte's commitment to build our capabilities in cybersecurity," said Ray Winn, Deloitte managing partner for federal audit and enterprise risk services.
Before working at FAA, Brown was the chief information officer at the Army National Guard. He retired from the Army in 2001 with 32 years of service behind him, including a stint as the director of the Army's information assurance office. While in the service, Brown oversaw the vulnerability analysis of all weapons systems that supported the service's first digitized force.
