Gordon M. Snow, the deputy assistant director of the FBI’s Cyber Division, has been promoted to assistant director of the division, Tickle The Wire reported . Snow was in the deputy assistant director position for just few months, as he continued his rapid rise in the bureau.
Snow joined the bureau in 1992, starting off as an agent in Huntsville, Ala. He joined the Critical Incident Response Group as a member of the Hostage Rescue Team in April 1996. Five years later he was promoted to supervisory special agent in the Counterintelligence Division’s Middle East Unit, a position he held for two years before being assigned to the Detroit Division as a supervisor of the foreign counterintelligence program.
In the past five years, according to a news release  Friday from the FBI, Snow has also served as chief of the Weapons of Mass Destruction and Acquisition of U.S. Nuclear & Missile Technology Unit at FBI headquarters, an assistant special agent in charge of the San Francisco Division’s San Jose Resident Agency, the FBI’s on-scene commander for the Counterterrorism Division in Afghanistan, section chief in the Cyber Division and director of the National Cyber Investigative Joint Task Force.
According to FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III, “The FBI considers the cyber threat against our nation to be one of the greatest concerns of the 21st century,” adding, “Protecting the United States against cyber crimes is one of the FBI’s highest priorities and, in fact, is the FBI’s highest criminal priority. Gordon’s broad range of investigative and leadership experience will serve the Cyber Division well as they carry out this mission.”
