The House of Representatives is in the market for a new chief information security officer (CISO) to lead the legislative chamber’s cybersecurity efforts on behalf of its 10,000 members, staff, and officers.
According to a job posting on USAJOBS, the CISO will be responsible for leading, implementing, and operating the House cybersecurity program; as well as maintaining and updating a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy that ensures the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the House’s information systems and resources.

The CISO will work under the House Office of the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), which provides operations support services and business solutions to House members, officers, and staff.

To be considered for the position, applicants must respond by or before September 29.
