FCW : March 30, 2015
March 30, 2015 FCW.COM 31 Lt. Gen. Ronnie D. Hawkins Jr. Director Defense Information Systems Agency Defense Department The gatekeeper. Hawkins has one of the hardest jobs in federal IT: to help protect the Pentagon’s global information net- works, which are under unrelenting cyber- attack. The DISA director has managed it by making progress on vast projects such as the Joint Regional Security Stacks, a collec- tion of servers, switches and software tools intended to give network operators better visibility into the traffic on those networks. JRSS might not win headlines, but it is the kind of labor-intensive project that will make DOD networks more secure. Amy Herchek Program Manager Texas Joint Crime Information Center Texas Department of Public Safety A model for information sharing. The Homeland Security Information Network succeeds only if state and local agencies can put it to good use, and Herchek’s work on Texas’ Operation Strong Safety program is proof of what’s possible. As part of a data-driven effort to reduce human and drug trafficking along the U.S ./Mexico border, OSS has used HSIN to dramati- cally improve situational awareness and collaboration for the 15 federal, state and local law enforcement agency partners. Herchek has been the program’s driving force by training users, troubleshooting obstacles and agitating for greater agency participation. Rick Holgate Assistant Director and CIO Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Justice Department Getting his ACT together. Holgate has a busy day job as CIO at ATF. But it’s what he does off the clock that makes him a premier ambassador for the federal IT community and a role model for aspir- ing government techies. As president of the American Council for Technology, he oversaw the makeover of the well-attended ACT-IAC Executive Leadership Conference. “He has inspired many other leaders to get involved in improving government outside of their day jobs,” said former IAC Chair- man Jim Williams. Hudson Hollister Executive Director Data Transparency Coalition Data junkie. Although he studied to be a lawyer, Hollister has spent his career developing policy aimed at replacing paper documents with machine-readable data. He quit a job at the Securities and Exchange Commission because he felt the agency was slow-walking data policy and took a job on Capitol Hill, where he drafted early versions of the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act. As founder of the Data Transparency Coalition, Hollister cajoled legislators to pass a tough version that opened up government spending data. Now that the bill is law, he is keeping an eye on implementation. John P. Hynes Jr. President and CEO TASC A CEO who thinks bigger. Hynes had plenty to keep him busy in 2014 with his day job. Like many companies that have long focused on best-value offerings, TASC needed to change rapidly as “lowest price, technically acceptable” became the norm, and Hynes steered the firm to a merger with Engility that was finalized last month. Yet he also made time to focus on the broader community by serving as a board member of the Capital Area Food Bank and actively supporting the Intelligence and National Security Alliance’s work on cyber intelligence and the Intelligence Commu- nity IT Enterprise.
