He later served in two software-related positions within the Office of the Secretary of Defense prior to accepting his current position.  As a Project Management Professional, Jarzombek has spoken extensively on measurement, software assurance, and acquisition topics.  He encourages further review of DHS-sponsored software assurance efforts via the Build Security In website.
