Name: Jordan Burris
Title: Chief of Staff, Office of the Federal CIO
Organization: Office of Management and Budget

In 2019, he was OMB’s lead on Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management implementation and involved in policies for protecting high-value assets and advancing the Trusted Internet Connections framework. His colleagues also praise his talents as a mentor, a label that makes Burris a bit uncomfortable but seems spot-on. “Whenever I’m meeting anyone,” he told FCW, “my number one thing is to make sure they are getting the most out of their careers or what they want to do.”
