Ann Dunkin, chief information officer of the Environmental Protection Agency, has called on government agencies to focus more on ways to safeguard critical data and networks from breaches and other cyber attacks in an interview with Federal News Radio posted Monday.

“We’re not ready to give up on protecting our perimeter, but we do know that we have to take care of those high-value things,” Dunkin told the station.

She noted that EPA’s efforts will focus more on cybersecurity in the coming months, she said.

Dunkin also told the station the agency is setting up a team under Greg Godbout, lead of digital services group at EPA, to help promote long-term agile development and procurement practices within the agency.

She added EPA has launched efforts to ramp up use of SharePoint software and G3 version of Office 365 collaboration platform and establish the National Computing Center as the agency’s brokerage for cloud services as part of her technology agenda.
