Langevin staffer moving to Department of Homeland Security

January 27, 2012

Davis Hake, military legislative assistant for US Representative Jim Langevin, is heading to the US Department of Homeland Security as a cybersecurity strategist.

Langevin has focused on the cybersecurity issue, a topic likely to grow in public attention because of hacking efforts from China and elsewhere.

Langevin spokesman Jonathon Dworkin says Hake’s role will be filled by Michael Hermann, who has worked for about five years with US Representative Henry Waxman of California, the top Democrat on the Energy and Commerce Committee.

Hake has a reputation as an industrious fellow, according to this story in Federal Computer Week:

Davis Hake is arguably the House’s hardest-working aide, at least when it comes to making cybersecurity issues accessible for fellow staffers and lawmakers.

He is the driving force behind the House Cybersecurity Caucus, which his boss, Rep. Jim Langevin (D-R.I.), co-leads. Hake keeps people on both sides of the aisle informed through weekly e-mail updates and cyber information briefings for industry and government, which he holds in the Capitol Visitor Center to make them convenient for staffers.

Back in Rhode Island, Hake launched the first statewide high school cybersecurity talent search as part of the U.S. Cyber Challenge, which offers young people the chance to win recognition, scholarships and opportunities for further learning.
