Nancy DeFrancesco, the Commerce Departments Chief Information Security 
Officer, is leaving the department to return to the Government 
Accountability Office.

She will serve in GAO as an assistant director for security on the 
watchdog agencys Information Technology team, the same position she held 
before going to Commerce in April 2002.

In May 2006, DeFrancesco convinced Commerce officials to establish an 
education and training program for its information security 
professionals. The department awarded a contract to (ISC) 2 Inc. of Palm 
Harbor, Fla., to provide courses for employees to earn designations as 
Certified Information Systems Security Professionals (CISSP), System 
Security Certified Professionals (SSCP) and Certification and 
Accreditation Professionals (CAP).

DeFrancesco declined to comment on her reasons for returning to GAO.
