State Intelligence CIO Talks Digital Transformation for Modern Diplomacy

Diplomacy hinges on cybersecurity and modernizing the network amid growing emerging tech priorities.

The Bureau of Intelligence and Research (INR), both a bureau in the State Department and a member of the Intelligence Community, is the only U.S. intelligence organization with the primary responsibility of providing intelligence to inform diplomacy and support U.S. diplomats.

The bureau, like many government agencies, has focused on modernizing the enterprise by upskilling the workforce and modernizing IT. CIO Jimmy Hall, also director of the Technology, and Innovation Office (TIO), spoke about this progress, what makes some of his technology challenges unique and what it all means for ongoing diplomacy priorities.
