An FBI veteran with a track record of taking down cybercriminals has taken a new job in the private sector.

iJet's Janice FedarcykJanice Fedarcyk, who served for 25 years in the FBI and was one of the highest-ranked women in the organization during her tenure, will work for iJET International as vice president of global programs.

iJET provides risk-management solutions that help businesses avoid and mitigate threats. Fedarcyk will oversee service delivery in a number of iJET offices that span four continents.

“Ms. Fedarcyk has a deep understanding of the unique operating challenges faced by multinational organizations and will grow our global programs team and ensure we continue to deliver sophisticated and comprehensive programs,” said Mark Donohue, senior vice president of client success, to whom Fedarcyk will report. “iJET and our clients are very fortunate to have someone of Ms. Fedarcyk’s caliber and unique experience.”

“I’m excited to bring my substantive FBI and private-industry consulting experience to the iJET team and will work to empower our clients to more quickly identify emerging threats and employ mitigation strategies through holistic and mature risk management programs,” she said. “At the end of the day, it’s about being prepared to protect your people, interests, information and facilities.”
