The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency has named Bob Lord to serve as a senior technical adviser to the Cybersecurity Division. 

Lord's deep cybersecurity experience includes time as chief information security officer (CISO) at Yahoo, a CISO-in-residence role at Rapid7, and as Twitter's first hire for its information security program.
