Labor hires new deputy CIO

The Labor Department earlier this month hired Tom Wiesner to be its new deputy CIO.

Patrick Pizzella, Labor CIO, said Wiesner's responsibilities include all areas of IT and e-government, with a concentration in cybersecurity. He replaces Laura Callahan, who left in March to become the deputy CIO at the Homeland Security Department.

Wiesner came to Labor from the Homeland Security Department, where he coordinated IT products and services for all airports under the Transportation Security Administration.

Before coming to TSA in Sept. 2002, Wiesner held various positions at the Treasury Department, including director of the CIO's Office of Wireless Programs and director of the Office of IT Security.

Wiesner graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a bachelor's in electrical engineering.
