Who's Protecting Us Now?

Trump moved John Kelly from head of DHS to White House Chief of Staff. Now, the head of IT security at DHS has resigned.
The chief information officer at the Department of Homeland Security has resigned from his position after only three months on the job, the department confirmed on Monday. [...]

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly also left DHS less than two weeks ago to take over as White House chief of staff, resulting in a vacancy atop the agency tasked with enforcing border security and protecting civilian federal networks and critical infrastructure from cyberattacks.

Staropoli in June said he wanted to run his DHS office at a pace comparable to that of “a hedge fund in New York.”

In remarks at an annual gathering run by FedScoop, Staropoli said he wanted to “open the doors to the private sector” and “see what’s going on.”

“I cannot continue to operate at the pace at which we’re operating,” he said, according to FedScoop. “You want something done? You’ve got 45 seconds to explain to me what you need and what I can do to help you.”

Days later at the ACT-IAC acquisition conference in June, Staropoli boasted of his longevity as an officer at a hedge fund.

“Most hedge fund managers stay in their high-pressure, fast-paced jobs for only a year to a year-and-a-half,” he said, according to a report by FCW. “I stayed for eight years.”

So, what happened, dude? Or maybe that's, what's about to happen?

...but hey, do what you want...you will anyway.
