Terry Halvorsen, chief information officer at the Department of the Navy since 2010, will shift to the acting CIO role for the Defense Department, according to a report in Politico.

David Perera reports that Halvorsen’s agenda will include work to bring the military forward on adopting a unified information technology architecture and priorities for cybersecurity and interoperability.

Halvorsen joined DoN as CIO after he served as deputy commander of Navy Cyber Forces and earlier as deputy commander of the Naval Network Warfare Command, where he led more than 16,000 military and civilian personnel to support nearly 300 ships and approximately 800,000 computer network users.

The nearly three-decade federal service veteran joined Senior Executive Service in July 2004 as executive director of the Naval Personnel Development Command.
