Col. Marc Packler
Commander, Cyberspace Capabilities Center
U.S. Air Force
The force behind the remote workforce.
Packler was the driving force behind a 21-page strategic plan to expand the Air Force’s telework capabilities during the pandemic. As a result, the service’s number of teleworkers rose from 9,000 to 437,000. He also led the Air Force’s first “bring your own approved device” initiative, which meant coordinating over 1,900 cloud requirements for the interim approval to test and authority to operate. In addition, Packler established a daily battle rhythm to provide IT and cyber weapon system updates across the Air Force. More than 200 attendees participated regularly, including up to a dozen general officers and Senior Executive Service members.
