Sisolak said he has extensive experience in cyber security operations, disaster recovery, business planning and strategic planning.
“Now more than ever the security and integrity of our state IT infrastructure is critical,” he said.
Cunningham begins his job as head of the Enterprise Information Technology Division on Aug. 31.
