Chris DeRusha

Federal Chief Information Security Officer


The Federal Chief Information Security Officer will review the Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity.  The White House is pushing ahead with a cybersecurity order for agencies to protect not only federal networks, but also help defend critical infrastructure. Along with those latest requirements, federal agencies have to navigate emerging technologies such as Zero Trust, as well as modernize their IT and enhance the security of the software supply chain. The Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA) also needs to be updated to help drive cybersecurity modernization.  Coordination across the federal government will be crucial in effectively improving the government’s cybersecurity posture.
