CSC adds cybersecurity lawyer to public-sector business unit

Mark Rasch will establish cybersecurity and privacy consulting practice at CSC

Computer Sciences Corp. has hired Mark Rasch as director of cybersecurity and privacy consulting in its North American Public Sector business unit.

Reporting to Carlos Solari, vice president of Cyber Technology and Solutions, Rasch will help develop and implement a comprehensive strategy for deploying and growing a new cybersecurity and privacy consulting practice at CSC, according to a company announcement released today.

Rasch is a lawyer and author of numerous security- and privacy-related articles. He has lectured and taught graduate courses in cyber crime, law and technology at educational institutions across the country, CSC said.

Rasch has spent the past 20 years in the private sector providing security, regulatory compliance and privacy consulting, as well as disaster recovery and business continuation planning issues with corporate and government entities.

Previously, he worked in the Justice Department, where he led efforts to investigate and prosecute cyber and high-technology crime.

He started the computer crime unit within the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section, efforts that eventually led to the creation of the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section.

"With more than 25 years of extensive corporate and government experience, Rasch will enhance CSC’s visibility and reputation in cybersecurity and privacy solutions and bolster the company’s position as a trusted adviser to commercial and government clients in these critical areas,” Samuel Visner, CSC vice president and lead executive for cyber, said in the statement.

Rasch received his legal training at the State University of New York’s Buffalo School of Law and holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the State University of New York at Albany.

CSC, of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 10 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
