2018 Fed 100

Federal 100: Matthew B. Shallbetter

Name: Matthew B. Shallbetter
Title: Director of Security Design and Innovation
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services

HHS' silo-buster. Shallbetter earned buy-in and support from CIOs, chief information security officers and others at 12 Security Operations Centers to create the HHS Cyber Automation Program. Previously, HHS' central SOC had zero visibility into the other operational divisions' centers and therefore operated with incomplete data. Shallbetter changed the culture to increase interagency collaboration, which has allowed HHS to operate in a more holistic way. HHS divisions are now able to share important data across teams in real time, resulting in more coordinated IT and cybersecurity efforts for some of the most public-facing federal agencies.
