is Krug's most recent annual salary as of Feb
2019 according to my FOIA request to the SEC and to my FOIA
request to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM).
This is outrageous. Most doctors and lawyers don't make that
much and, unlike Krug, they are at least qualified; by law
they have to be.
For years the SEC had been warned that it was vulnerable to
cyberattack, and still is, and Krug was SEC CISO during the
SEC data breach in 2016.
Krug previously worked for IT incompetent Booz but went
through the business-government revolving door; see Principles

. Booz is a leading provider of IT
services to the U.S. Government, particularly defense and
intelligence, like the IT incompetent National Security Agency
(NSA). Booz has been called the world's largest commercial
spy agency, ironically doing so for other countries besides

The SEC recently awarded Booz, where Krug previously worked, a
$2.5 billion 10-year IT (including cybersecurity) contract
even though Booz was responsible for traitorous spy Snowden
and had its own data breach, in which it let hackers have
thousands of military emails. Being SEC CISO, Krug would have
been involved in this IT contract award and, in collusion with
former Booz employee Chuck Riddle
, SEC data breach
CTO, it's obvious Krug was still working for Booz in exchange
for a higher-paying job with Booz later. See Booz

which could and should have been discovered beforehand and
stopped. All this makes Booz itself a severe threat to
