BAH-DHS Cyber fake Jeanette Manfra.

Manfra, Jeanette



Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Assistant Secretary for Cybersecurity, Jul 2017 - present. Previously worked for IT incompetent Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH, Booz).

No IT education. Only a BA in history and an MA in international relations.

$171,291 is Manfra's most recent annual salary as of Feb 2019 according to my FOIA request to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM). This is outrageous. Many doctors and lawyers don't make that much and, unlike Manfra, they are at least qualified; by law they have to be.

Manfra is part of DHS's National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD), which is tasked with protecting America's physical infrastructure, particularly its electrical grid, and its cyber infrastructure, particularly its Internet; see Handing Over America's Electrical Grid to the Russians. She has probably already risked national security by letting Facebook and its hackers read all her email; see Facebook Reads Your And Government Officials'/Politicians' Email. She doesn't know enough about cybersecurity to protect her own family -- she posts her maiden name, location, photos of her children, and a list of her parents/siblings/cousin, with photos, on her Facebook page.

Manfra previously worked for IT incompetent Booz but went through the business-government revolving door; see Principles of IT Incompetence (IT Hiring: Government, Business, and the Revolving Door). 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 U.S. Many of Booz's IT employees and former employees are IT incompetent.

The most notorious is high school dropout and traitorous spy Edward Snowden. Others of Booz's IT incompetent employees besides Snowden have been involved in espionage against the U.S., which is not surprising because the incompetent are more likely to be disloyal since they constantly fear for their jobs anyway; see Principles of IT Incompetence (IT Hiring: IT Incompetence Breeds Disloyalty and Corruption).

For even more of Booz's IT incompetent former employees that are now high IT officials, see Booz Hacks Fed IT, Makes It Incompetent, Insecure, Bankrupt, which besides Manfra also discusses former Booz employees: SEC data breach CISO Andrew Krug and SEC data breach CTO Chuck Riddle. Incredibly, see also Booz's current CIO, Susan Penfield.

Further, Booz had its own data breach and let hackers have thousands of military emails. It was just such IT incompetence at the NSA that caused 9/11, which could and should have been discovered beforehand and stopped. All this makes Booz itself a severe threat to national security.
