As the world becomes ever more connected and dependent on digital technology, cyber executives and their teams are working on creative solutions to meet the continuously evolving cyber threats facing federal and private-sector clients so people and information stays protected.

Leading that charge at Jacobs is Senior Vice President of Cyber Caesar Nieves. WashingtonExec recently named Caesar to their Top 25 Cyber Execs to Watch in 2020 list which highlights executives in both the government and the private sector who consistently stay one step ahead of adversaries and equipped with the technical know-how to safeguard systems and information. They’ve achieved significant milestones and goals with the support of strong leadership, teams and processes, and possess the know-how to navigate the complexities of the cyberthreat landscape.

Caesar joined Jacobs in December 2019, tapped to provide senior leadership, strategic vision and focus for Jacobs' cyber business as the company expands its cyber footprint amid major intelligence and cyber acquisitions over the past four years.

Delivering capabilities and solutions

As a premier provider of national security-grade cyber solutions, Jacobs supports a variety of customers in the Department of Defense, Intelligence Community, Federal Civilian, State/Local and International markets. To help ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the world's most sensitive networks, systems and data, Jacobs is focused on delivering capabilities and solutions in cyber readiness, cyber operations and cyber analytics.

Fostering innovation

To strengthen Jacobs’ cyber readiness capability, the company recently established the Jacobs Cyber Innovation Training Center in Maryland. This new facility provides state-of-the-art amenities to both students and staff in one location. Among many features, it has a mock security operation center with a full video wall and global connectivity that can handle large-scale military, national security and civilian exercises within a team-based setting.

“This training center is cutting edge and provides the exact training needed for defending our nation against evolving cyberthreats,” explained Caesar in a recent interview conducted by WashingtonExec.

Under Caesar’s leadership, the company also established the Jacobs Data Fusion Innovation Center in Austin, Texas to help bolster its cyber analytics capability. The center includes cyber, data science and cloud-scale engineering professionals developing next-generation data analytics.

“This is another example of how Jacobs is driving and proactively staying ahead of the constantly evolving cyberthreats to provide our customers with cutting-edge technology and world-class solutions,” Caesar added.

Expanding cyber footprint

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) recently selected Jacobs to provide agency-wide cybersecurity support services for its 18,000-person workforce. Jacobs will leverage its team experience and tools to support all systems and system boundaries within USPTO's enterprise IT environment, while identifying opportunities for improving the security posture of the agency's mission-critical systems and applications.
