Press Release: Cybersecurity Executive Rick Driggers Joins Accenture Federal Services

“Accenture Federal Services, (AFS), a subsidiary of Accenture (NYSE: ACN), has hired cybersecurity expert and former CISA executive, Rick Driggers. Driggers brings more than 30 years of federal government and military experience to AFS and will play a key role in developing cybersecurity solutions designed to protect our nation’s critical infrastructure.

‘As the cyber threat landscape becomes increasingly more sophisticated, Rick’s extensive cyber operations, national security, and mission execution expertise will prove extremely valuable in supporting our federal clients with proactive risk mitigation and response,’ said Aaron Faulkner, AFS managing director and cybersecurity practice lead.

Prior to joining AFS, Driggers served as the Assistant Director for the Integrated Operations Division at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the federal agency responsible for identifying and addressing significant threats to our nation’s critical infrastructure. Driggers also served as Principal Deputy Director of Operations for the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center, and earlier as the Director of Data and Systems Integration Policy for the National Security Council.

‘A recent sharp rise in cyberattacks has disrupted the delivery of essential services and have made the public keenly aware of the need to harden our nation’s vulnerabilities, from critical infrastructure to government services and the Department of Defense,’ said Driggers. ‘Accenture Federal Services’ relentless focus on security innovation and helping customers anticipate cyberattacks before they happen was central to my decision to make the leap into the private sector. I look forward to this next chapter in my career dedicated to leveraging cutting edge technologies and the expertise of Accenture’s cybersecurity professionals to provide AFS’s customers with a proactive defense posture and end-to-end protection of their IT data, applications, and infrastructure, along with their operational technology and industrial control system (OT/ICS) environments…” Read the full press release here.
