David Laufman, an experienced former federal prosecutor, will take over the Justice Department’s counterespionage efforts as part of a larger restructuring to put more of a focus on cyber attacks, Reuters reports.

Laufman is expected to begin his job today as chief of the counterespionage section of the Justice Department’s national security division.

Laufman is returning to government work after joining the private sector. He’s worked as a CIA analyst, a congressional insider and in the early 2000s a senior Justice Department official under George W. Bush.

The Justice Department is trying to get a handle on growing cyber threats and violations of export control laws, Reuters wrote.
