DHS IT Modernization Centers Around Cloud, CTO Reorganization and Cyber Talent

The agency’s tech chief describes an effort to empower and standardize CTOs across the agency amid new recruitment and cloud modernization.

Cloud Smart is one of several initiatives underway to boost IT modernization at the Department of Homeland Security. This approach is not only helping DHS better manage and access data, it’s also empowering the workforce to make decisions in their environments at a faster pace.  DHS CTO David Larrimore has created a Chief Technology Officer Council that will restructure the CTO role to be more grounded in federal IT management. DHS has also leveraged the Cyber Talent Management System to hire a more diverse and high-tech workforce ahead of anticipated shortages.
