Modern networks for leathernecks. Mahlock is responsible for developing and implementing the vision, policy and compliance for the Marine Corps Enterprise Network, which includes the mandate to modernize and deliver a warfighting network at the tactical edge that will allow Marines to compete with the threats outlined in the National Defense Strategy. In 2019, she ushered in long overdue changes to the framework for network governance and implemented a monthly Network Governance Board to allow stakeholders to contribute to risk-informed, transparent decisions with the CIO.
