The Office of Information and Technology at the Department of Veterans Affairs is undergoing a series of leadership changes to meet "evolving technology and security needs." The changes were detailed in a March 7 memo from  VA Chief Information Security Officer Brian Burns obtained by FCW.

Tina Burnette, formerly executive director for enterprise risk management at OI&T, will serve as executive director for field security services. Additionally, Susan Perez was named chief of staff for the Office of Information Security. Gary Stevens was will serve as lead for strategic and material weaknesses on OI&T's Enterprise Cybersecurity Strategy Team. 

Inside the Office of Information Security, Martin DeLeo will head cloud security and Ruth Cannatti will serve as lead for onboarding and PIV services. Casey Johle was named as lead for the Elevated Privileges project team.

"These leaders are very familiar faces to many, and we look forward to engaging with them in their new roles," Burns said.

Burns, a longtime VA IT official, was named to the CISO post in November 2015.
