Under his leadership, the Air Force has moved to Joint Regional Security Stacks for better network management and security and has adopted Microsoft’s cloud-based Office 365 suite. His efforts have increased the transparency of the Air Force’s IT and cybersecurity budget, and his enterprisewide Automated Remediation and Asset Discovery tool has caught the attention of DOD leaders. Under Bender’s watch, the Air Force is soaring ever higher on DOD’s cybersecurity scorecard.
