Accenture announced on Monday that Aaron Faulkner has joined Accenture Federal Services (AFS) to head its federal cyber practice. He will lead the design, development and delivery of innovative cybersecurity solutions for all of AFS’ U.S. federal defense and civilian agency clients.
“With the cyber threat landscape becoming more sophisticated, Aaron’s experience in applying automation, cloud, and AI, to defend systems at the speed of cyber, can help our clients reach the next generation of cyber capabilities,” said John Goodman, chief executive of AFS and a 2019 Wash100 Award recipient.
“His long standing reputation for cyber expertise will enable the agencies that we serve to stay ready and responsive to changing mission demands and more resilient in the face of persistent threats,” Goodman added.
Faulkner brings to AFS more than 18 years of experience in the delivery of advanced technology and cybersecurity solutions to public sector and commercial customers. Faulkner has tackled critical cybersecurity challenges in digital identity, cyber defense, application security and managed security services.
Prior to joining AFS, Faulkner served as vice president of cybersecurity and the lead executive responsible for growth and delivery of cybersecurity solutions at ECS, a science, engineering, cybersecurity and advanced technology solution provider. He also served as chief strategy officer and vice president for business development at InfoReliance, which ECS acquired in 2017.
“I’m excited to join the Accenture Federal Services team, as throughout my career I’ve learned the value of bringing people and technology together to solve the government’s toughest cybersecurity challenges,” Faulkner said. “I look forward to helping AFS’ clients take advantage of new technologies and cyber services that will secure their systems, networks and IT infrastructure.”
