APRIL 18—Bruce Brody has joined the Veterans Affairs Department to fill the new position of associate deputy assistant secretary for cybersecurity.

This is one of the department's initiatives to improve information technology security, an area in which VA has come under severe criticism from its inspector general and the General Accounting Office.

Previously, Brody worked as the director of Information Superiority Investment Strategy for the Defense Department.

Brody has several years of experience in IT at Defense, including the Defense Information Systems Agency and Defense Intelligence Agency.
