Alaska's chief information security officer, Mark Breunig, has left his position with little fanfare to take on a new role as a cybersecurity adviser for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The move, which happened a month ago, comes on the heels of two major cyber attacks impacting the state’s court system and the Department of Health and Social Services.

Dave Donley, a spokesman for the Department of Administration, told Alaska Public Media that the state is actively recruiting for the position, which currently offers a $135,000 salary.

Prior to serving as CISO, Breunig was a project manager at Accenture, a senior manager of IT security at NANA Development Corporation, an IT manager for the municipality of Anchorage and the owner of his own IT security consulting business.
