Federal 100: Damen O. Hofheinz

 

Name: Damen O. Hofheinz
Title: Branch Head, OPNAV N2N6G5 Cyber Resiliency
Agency: U.S. Navy

Masterful planner. Hofheinz was crucial to the Navy’s successful migration of its first network to the Joint Regional Security Stacks in 2017. JRSS will improve situational awareness by combining common event information across the military services. Hofheinz led the Navy’s collaboration efforts, which included identifying more than 30 critical updates to the Defense Department’s software accreditation tool for Navy systems. His efforts will eliminate administrative burdens and reduce the time it takes to process accreditations. His work culminated in the development of the Navy’s risk management framework guide and established a transition process that is saving more than $3.8 million.
