Cybernet Systems Corporation has appointed Donald Lawson as director of cybersecurity and training systems.

Prior to the appointment, Lawson managed multiple Department of Defense cybersecurity contracts, helping to develop an automated cybersecurity vulnerability scanning and remediation tool called Security Advisor, and a centralized compliance monitoring solution called Security Manager.

"Donald has been extremely instrumental in designing and developing our cybersecurity products and services, as well as leading research efforts,” said Andrew Maxon, vice president of cybersecurity and training systems. “He has also been key to the success of the division through his leadership and management of all of Cybernet’s cybersecurity contracts for every market we serve."

Lawson will now focus on developing new business opportunities for the cybersecurity division, leading the charge for the development of new products and services that benefit the DoD and commercial sectors.
