2019 Fed 100

Federal 100: Sanjay Gupta

 

Name: Sanjay Gupta
Title: CTO
Agency: Small Business Administration

Turnaround artist. When Gupta became SBA’s CTO, he joined one of the most technology-challenged agencies. But he has been a key part of the turnaround team, running pilot projects to modernize the Trusted Internet Connections and Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation programs and leveraging on-premises and cloud environments to boost cybersecurity — cutting costs and complexity in the process. When the 2018 hurricane season hit, he moved SBA’s disaster assistance apps to the cloud, saving hardware expenses and getting 5,000 additional employees online in record time. Gupta now helps others flip their legacy technology and has shared SBA’s cloud and cybersecurity techniques with over 20 agencies.
