FCW : September 15, 2015
FCW will soon begin accepting nominations for the 2016 Fed- eral 100 awards. And it’s never too early to start thinking about who deserves the federal IT community’s most prestigious recognition. The Federal 100s, of course, spotlight individuals who are having an outsized impact on federal IT. Nominees can come from federal agencies, the private sector, academia or the nonprofit world. Our judges weigh each nomi- nation carefully and factor in the nominators and the story they tell. Ultimately, though, it boils down to the nominee’s posi- tive impact on federal IT, with special emphasis on these three elements: • This is an individual award. Teams are important, too, but we’re looking for the women and men who power that collaboration. • Winners go above and beyond, whatever their level or rank. A fancy job title is not required, and doing one’s job well is not enough. • Results matter. Exceptional effort is necessary but not suf- ficient. There must be clear impact in the past 12 months. So gather your information and supporting nominators, and be ready when nominations open in late October. Make sure we know about all the worthy women and men in federal IT. — Troy K. Schneider firstname.lastname@example.org @troyschneider EDITOR’S NOTE Who’s Fed 100-worthy? Trending people were affected by the breach of the IRS’ “Get Transcript” application — nearly three times the number originally thought 334,000 Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work has set up an intra-department council to manage cyber workforce issues at the Defense Department. In an Aug. 11 directive, he tasked the council with ensuring that the Pentagon takes a holistic, “total force management” perspective to filling the department’s cyber workforce needs with civilian, military and contracting personnel. The goal is to avoid duplica- tion and omissions in the cyber-related skillsets demanded by DOD officials. The new council will include mem- bers of the offices of the DOD CIO, undersecretary of Defense for person- nel and readiness, undersecretary of Defense for policy, undersecretary of Defense for intelligence and director of the National Security Agency. The broadly worded directive also “unifies the overall cyberspace work- force and establishes specific workforce elements.” The updated policy is in keeping with Work’s and other officials’ emphasis on building a technically sound DOD cyber workforce of some 6,000 employees. The directive comes on the heels of a breach of the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s unclassified email network by hackers allegedly linked to Russia. The absence of decryption played a significant role in that hack, a former intelligence official familiar with the network told FCW. The Russian hack- ers believed to be behind the breach took advantage of encrypted traffic that the Joint Chiefs of Staff was not decrypting and inspecting, the official added. — Sean Lyngaas DOD sets up cyber workforce council Join the conversation FCW uses Twitter to break news, field questions and ask our own.
