FCW : January 2016
is the proposed new deadline for defense contractors to comply with NIST SP 800-171 security standards Dec. 31, 2017 Ashkan Soltani has joined the White House’s Office of Science and Technol- ogy Policy as a senior adviser to U.S. CTO Megan Smith. Soltani will focus on consumer pro- tection, big data and privacy issues. He will also help with IT capacity- building in government, including working with agencies to create career paths for technologists across the executive branch. Before joining the White House, Soltani was chief technologist at the Federal Trade Commission, where he advised officials on evolving technol- ogy and policy issues. Previously, he worked as an investigative journal- ist at the Washington Post, where he earned a Pulitzer Prize in 2014 for his contribution to a series of reports on the National Security Agency’s surveil- lance programs. Carnegie Mellon University profes- sor Lorrie Faith Cranor will suc- ceed Soltani as chief technologist at the FTC in January. At CMU, she teaches courses in computer science and in engineering and public policy, and serves as director of the CyLab Usable Privacy and Security Labora- tory. She’s the author or editor of more than 150 research papers on online privacy and usable security. Micheline Casey, former chief data officer at the Federal Reserve, has been appointed to ClearStory Data’s advisory board. At the Federal Reserve, Casey was responsible for leading a growing team, managing a $12 million budget and expanding the agency’s data organiza- tion. Previously, she worked as a con- sultant at CDO, and from 2009 to 2011, she served as the nation’s first state- level chief data officer, in Colorado. Casey told FCW that she was hon- ored to have served as the Federal Reserve’s first chief data officer and proud of the work she and her team accomplished, but she was excited to return to her private-sector roots. Ron Thompson, most recently a senior IT executive at the Depart- ment of Health and Human Services, is joining the Department of Veterans Affairs as the deputy to CIO LaVerne Council. He will take over the principal dep- uty assistant secretary role vacated by longtime senior official and former acting CIO Stephen Warren. Previ- ously, Thompson worked at the IRS and the Census Bureau. In November, Council tapped Brian Burns, a leader in the electronic health record interoperability effort, to serve as chief information secu- rity officer. With the appointment of Thompson, she has filled the top ranks of the executive suite at the Office of Information and Technology. President Barack Obama has nominated Andrew Mayock, a senior adviser in the Office of Management and Budget, to be the agency’s dep- uty director for management. If con- firmed, Mayock will take over for OMB Controller Dave Mader, who is serving in the position on an act- ing basis. The most recent Senate- confirmed deputy director for man- agement, Beth Cobert, is leading the Office of Personnel Management on an acting basis and has been nominated to take over that job permanently. Mayock became a senior adviser at OMB in November, after serving as associate director for general govern- ment programs since 2013. He was previously deputy vice pres- ident for compact implementation at the Millennium Challenge Corpora- tion, an independent U.S. foreign aid agency that works with poorer coun- tries to develop their economies, and executive secretary at the Treasury Department. A former State Department employ- ee has pleaded guilty to “sextortion” and cyberstalking young women attending college in the United States. Michael Ford was indicted by a grand jury in Georgia in August 2015 on nine counts of cyberstalking, seven counts of computer hacking to extort and one count of wire fraud. His campaign was designed to “force victims to provide Ford with personal information as well as sexu- ally explicit videos of others,” a Jus- tice Department announcement states. According to the allegations, Ford did the majority of the phishing and cyberstalking from his work computer at the U.S. Embassy in London. He hacked into hundreds of email and social media accounts by sending phishing messages to thousands of potential victims saying their accounts would be deleted unless they provided their passwords. Ford also allegedly sought sexu- ally explicit photos from his victims, which he would use as leverage to enmesh targets in a scheme to col- lect videos of women undressing in changing rooms at stores and gyms. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 16. — FCW staff FCW Insider: People on the move ASHKANSOLTANI.ORG/LORRIE.CRANOR.ORG/AF.MIL January 2016 FCW.COM 11 Clockwise from top left: Ashkan Soltani, Lorrie Faith Cranor, Micheline Casey and Brian Burns. 0116fcw_003-011.indd 11 1/6/16 2:40 PM
