FCW : November and December 2015
2015 Rising Stars with the contractor team to develop solutions. She is the data traffic cop for e3, and her efforts have improved the system’s abil- ity to capture and share biometric data on detained suspects and match data from other govern- ment entities. Prat has gotten to know her Border Patrol data customers through numerous visits to the rugged lands they work. She understands that officers must be able to identify the people they encounter quickly to ensure everyone’s safety. She also works closely with information partners at CBP’s Office of Information and Technology and the departments of Homeland Security, Defense and Justice. “I feel that each day I come into the office, the team and I have the ability to help U.S. Bor- der Patrol agents on the frontlines of our nation’s borders,” she said. “I truly believe the work we do supporting their systems techni- cally helps the agents work fast and stay safe.” — Mark Rockwell Teresa Rodriguez Teresa Rodriguez might have gotten into government IT as the result of a bit of a misunder- standing, but now she’s tackling challenges with a vengeance. She earned a degree in crimi- nal justice from the University of New Mexico, then worked in human resources in the private sector. Soon, however, she found herself drawn to tech. Nicholas Keshavarz-Nia’s career is young, even for a Rising Star. He was an intern at nonprofit Noblis while in college and joined the organization as a full-time information systems security engineer/analyst in 2014 when he graduated from the University of South Carolina’s computer infor- mation systems program. As both an intern and a full- time analyst, Keshavarz-Nia led development and deployment of the automated continuous moni- toring solution called ScanCenter. He now uses the tool to support the Federal Risk and Authoriza- tion Management Program as leader of FedRAMP’s Continuous Monitoring Team. By automating pro- cesses that were once manual, ScanCenter has slashed monthly continuous monitoring analysis for nearly two dozen cloud systems from an average of eight hours to just one hour, FedRAMP’s gov- ernment manag- ers said. “I’m all for saving money and time,” Keshavarz-Nia said, “and this pro- gram seems like it’s doing both.” FedRAMP’s streamlining of cloud authorization processes has proven critical for government, he said, adding, “This is something we’ve really needed for a really long time.” Monitoring ever-multiplying cybersecurity vulnerabilities is a “grueling task,” Keshavarz-Nia admitted, but he is pursuing a master’s degree in systems engi- neering at George Washington University as part of his plan to delve even deeper into the cyber- security space. — Zach Noble Nicholas Keshavarz-Nia 26 November/December 2015 FCW.COM 1215fcw_020-030.indd 26 11/16/15 2:58 PM
