The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has hired Kenneth Bible as its new CISO, a DHS management spokesperson confirmed to MeriTalk.
According to his LinkedIn page, Bible assumed his new role earlier this month. Prior to joining DHS, he served as deputy CIO for the Marine Corps from 2015 through 2021. He had been with the Marine Corps since 2013 and had served as chief technology advisor before becoming the deputy CIO. He has also held a variety of roles in the U.S. Navy in his nearly 30-year career.
Bible replaced Paul Beckman who left DHS to join the private sector in February of last year. Thresa Lang served as the agency’s acting CISO, but has now returned to her previous position as deputy CISO. Bible will report directly to DHS CIO Karen Evans.
Bible holds a Master of Engineering Degree from University of South Carolina-Columbia and a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Virginia Tech.
