ID implementer. When Dastouri took over DHS’ Access Lifecycle Management system, the agency was looking for a way to create “a whole picture of what made up a person’s identity so that we could make proper access control decisions” during onboarding, said Thomas McCarty, a division manager at DHS. He and other agency leaders credit Dastouri’s technical chops and leadership style for ensuring the successful rollout of ALM to 10,000 employees, which has helped improve the agency’s cybersecurity posture. “He has a characteristic of authority,” McCarty said. “You know you’re talking to a person who knows his stuff.”
