Mark Orndorff, chief information assurance executive at the Defense Information Systems Agency, has said the agency’s cybersecurity office will restructure to concentrate on strategic functions, Breaking Defense reported Wednesday.

Sydney Freedberg Jr. writes DISA has formed two new divisions to oversee information technology procurement and development.

Orndorff believes the organizational changes would allow the cybersecurity team to focus on developing strategies to address emerging security threats.

“With the reorg, and the focus on more strategic-level planning, I think we’ll be able to do a better job,” Orndorff told the publication Tuesday after an Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association panel discussion.

Orndorff added he or his successor will work to establish cybersecurity standards and ensure that all projects will comply with those requirements, according to Breaking Defense.
