Federal CISO

Chris DeRusha

Biden promoted his campaign CISO, Chris DeRusha, to be his Federal CISO shortly after taking office. DeRusha comes to the role with experience as a former White House cybersecurity official in the Obama administration and the state of Michigan’s chief security officer.

Grant Schneider served as Federal CISO for most of the Trump administration. After his departure, the White House tapped controversial Trump loyalist Camilo Sandoval to lead the office for a few months before the close of the term.
