FCW : June 15, 2015
Trending of information security professionals say they are concerned about “security technology sprawl” 65% 10 June 15, 2015 FCW.COM President Barack Obama intends to make Denise Turner Roth’s job as acting head of the General Services Administration into a more perma- nent one. Roth stepped into the acting admin- istrator position after Dan Tangh- erlini left the agency in February to become chief operating officer at Artemis Real Estate Partners. When she took over the acting administrator position, Roth told FCW that she saw her mission as perpetu- ating the successes her predecessor’s strategies yielded. Before she joined GSA as deputy administrator in 2014, Roth was city manager in Greensboro, N.C. She has also worked on Capitol Hill and for the D.C. government. Marine Corps CIO Brig. Gen. Kevin Nally will retire in July. At AFCEA NOVA’s Naval IT Day in May, Nally told the audience that this would be his last time speaking at the annual event — “unless,” he quipped, “I become president of the United States, in which case I’ll be happy to come back and talk to you.” He told reporters that after “34- plus years, it’s time to transition” but declined to comment on what he’ll do next, saying only, “I know what I don’t want to do.” Martha Dorris, director of strate- gic programs at the General Services Administration, won ACT-IAC’s 2015 John J. Franke Award. Mary Davie, Dorris’ boss at the Federal Acquisition Service and a for- mer Franke Award winner, described Dorris as “an acknowledged thought leader and committed public servant who encourages collaboration and supports her colleagues, taking risks to improve the customer experience.” The Franke award is named for John J. Franke, who was a Marine, businessman and local politician before shifting to a highly effective career in federal government service. He died in 1991. Greg Ambrose is moving to the Department of Veterans Affairs to take over as deputy CIO for product development, a job that has been open since Lorraine Landfried’s departure in July 2014. Ambrose was director of consular systems and technology at the State Department, where he worked on a modernization project that involved taking the Consular Consolidated Database, a massive system of 12 databases used to process passport and visa applications, from Windows 2003 to Linux. The goal is to give the stovepiped legacy systems a single look and feel. Last July, Ambrose led State’s response to a systemwide data ware- house crash that left the government unable to handle requests for three days. Kenneth Reynolds, Ambrose’s deputy in the Bureau of Consular Affairs, will fill in as director on an acting basis, according to a State Department email message shared with FCW. Dave McClure had been elected executive vice chair of the Industry Advisory Council. IAC has a built-in succession plan in which an industry leader serves one term as vice chair before ascending to the top job post. Current Execu- tive Vice Chair Ted Davies will take over for Dan Chenok this summer, and McClure will be in line to succeed Davies in 2016. McClure, who retired from the Gen- eral Services Administration in 2014 and is now chief strategist at the Veris Group, said he was excited to return to a larger role at ACT-IAC, particu- larly for a two-year stint that will span a transition in administrations. “It’s my kind of environment,” he said. The International Information Systems Security Certification Con- sortium honored a wide range of fed- eral executives with its U.S. Govern- ment Information Security Leadership Awards, including: • The Department of Homeland Secu- rity’s John Simms for speeding the deployment of the Continuous Diag- nostics and Mitigation program to 21 agencies while reducing costs. • The Education Department’s Ben- jamin Bergersen for making MAX. gov shared services the first agency- run software-as -a -service offering to receive authorization under the Fed- eral Risk and Authorization Manage- ment Program. • The U.S. Army’s Michael Redman for identifying a training gap among Defense Department cybersecurity professionals and crafting in-house courses that more than 300 of his colleagues have now taken. • The State Department’s Samuel Maroon for his volunteer efforts teaching and managing the Wound- ed Warrior Cyber Combat Academy, a program that trains injured veterans for careers in cybersecurity. — FCW staff FCW Insider: People on the move NAPAWASH.ORGGSA.GOV/ZAIDHAMID Clockwise from top left: Denise Turner Roth, Brig.
