KATHLEEN T. COWLES KEVIN COX BRANDEE DALY LAURA A. DELANEY 27 March 30, 2015 FCW.COM Kathleen T. Cowles Principal Deep Water Point Reinventing an institution. As industry chair of the 2014 ACT-IAC Executive Leader- ship Conference, Cowles reinvented one of the community’s signature venues for dis- cussion and planning — and, more impor- tant, created an incubator for several key ideas that continue to influence federal IT long after ELC adjourned. In shifting from lectures and speaker panels to open meet- ings and real conversations, she convinced skeptical stakeholders that, although ELC “wasn’t broken,” it could be much better and more collaborative. The outcomes and the community feedback suggest it was a change well worth making. Kevin Cox Assistant Director of Information Security Technologies Justice Department The risk reducer. Cox was responsible for launching two key programs in 2014. He led the push to change the way the Justice Department manages supply chain risk in its IT acquisition, as required by Congress. And he helped establish an Insider Threat Prevention and Detection Program as part of a White House effort to tighten access controls and evaluate potential risks posed by employees and contractors. Addition- ally, Cox led a team that responded to 7,000 incidents in 2014 and made sure the White House was kept apprised of progress on Justice’s security posture. Brandee Daly Federal Account Executive Amazon Web Services Leading the migration flock. Daly faced a daunting task when she was charged with helping the intelligence community move more than 1,000 applications to the cloud. Now, nearly one year after success- fully accomplishing that mission, she is helping intelligence agencies transition their operations and management to the cloud while also educating government and contractors about the changing land- scape of the systems integrator communi- ty. The IC’s new technical capability marks a major shift in information sharing and will save the government millions of dollars. Laura A. Delaney Deputy Director of Network Security Deployment Office of Cybersecurity and Communications Department of Homeland Security Enhancing Einstein. Delaney is the acquisition expert behind one of the gov- ernment’s most valuable tools for thwart- ing cyberattacks. The intrusion-detection program known as Einstein is designed to give DHS a view into the security of federal civilian networks. For the program to work, DHS must have traffic-scanning agreements with telecom providers, which Delaney has helped forge. It has not been easy: Negotiations between DHS and AT&T reportedly stalled over liability issues. But thanks to Delaney’s efforts, Einstein now detects and blocks malicious traffic on a massive scale. Kathryn Edelman Director of Governmental Affairs Investigations Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee U.S. Senate Pushing FITARA over the finish line. The Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act sailed through the House on a bipartisan basis, but the legislation cooled in the Senate. Edelman helped push FITARA over that last tough mile and got buy-in from key Senate constituencies on various com- mittees and in multiple areas of jurisdic- tion so the measure could be inserted in the Defense authorization bill. Edelman distinguished herself, even among top legislative staffers, for her knowledge of the underlying issues and her strategic acumen.
