The state of Vermont has appointed John Toney, a former global chief information security officer for Dallas-based City Electric Supply, as its chief information security officer (CISO).

“Effective security is more than an IT responsibility; it’s a team effort,” said Denise Reilly-Hughes, secretary of the Agency of Digital Services and chief information officer for the state. “We are fortunate to have John help in advancing Vermont’s security priorities of protecting state services and Vermonters.”

Toney joins his new role with over twenty years of information security experience. Prior to this, he was employed by the Secret Service as a special agent with expertise in protecting key systems and investigating network intrusion offenses.

Toney holds an executive CISO certification from Carnegie Mellon University and graduated from Michigan State University.
