Joshua Moses resigns as Chief, Cybersecurity, White House Office of Management and Budget

Dec. 5, 2018: Joshua Moses resigned on Friday, Nov. 30, 2018, as the Chief of Federal Cybersecurity at the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) after three years in the position. Moses has taken a job at PricewatershouseCoopers Commercial Division. Moses led the first-ever government-wide risk determination report, which established a baseline for all agencies and came up with specific plans to address these issues. “Josh was a huge contributor to and leader of the OMB Cyber Team and the Office of the Federal CIO/CISO [Chief Information Officer/Chief Information Security Officer]. The biggest compliment I can give is that after his four years, Federal cybersecurity is better today because of his efforts,” said Joe Stuntz, a former OMB Cyber Chief and now a Principal at OneWorld Identity. Moses also worked with U.S. Department of Homeland Security officials to address new goals and approaches to the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) to give agencies more flexibilities to achieve a final goal versus following a prescriptive set of requirements. Moses joined the government in 2009 as a Program Manager at the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). He then moved to the U.S. Department of Defense’s Office of the Inspector General, and he then worked as a Senior Program Evaluator at Amtrak from February, 2012, to February, 2015. He then worked as a Senior Program Manager at the U.S. Department of Justice from February, 2015, to July, 2015, when he took office as the Federal Cybersecurity Chief at OMB.
