President-elect Donald Trump released names of about three dozen additional agency landing team members Friday who will pave the way for Trump appointees at federal agencies, including at least two more with extensive cybersecurity backgrounds.

Bradley Buswell, a former Homeland Security Department deputy undersecretary for science and technology, will be joining the DHS landing team. DHS’ science and technology division is one of the major government funders of cybersecurity research and development. It’s separate from the DHS divisions charged with defending civilian government computer networks housed inside the National Protection and Programs Directorate.

Jennifer Arangio, a former senior counsel to the House Homeland Security Committee, will be joining the National Security Council landing team. Arangio was counsel under former committee Chairman Peter King, R-N.Y., and current Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas and advised on cybersecurity among other issues.

Here’s the full list of landing team members announced Friday.
