Kelly Miller
Deputy CIO
National Security Agency

Kelly Miller hasn't shied away from the daunting task of aligning IT environments for the Defense Department and Intelligence Community to ensure they have a sound and effective architecture.

As part of a small team from the defense and intelligence agencies, Miller engineered improvements in the Intelligence Community’s information environment to support deployed forces and headquarters leaders.
