He developed databases and data management tools and integrated a rapid and secure process to review those needs, conduct risk assessments and determine mitigation steps. His efforts allowed DOD to consistently and efficiently evaluate cybersecurity risks, and in just six months, the ban was lifted thanks to Ingraham’s ingenuity and perseverance.
