Stephen Warren, the Department of Veterans Affairs‘ chief information officer, said Thursday that VA intends to continue information technology security programs amid a looming $2.5 billion agency budget shortfall, FCW reported Thursday.

“I don’t see there being any impact on what we’re doing from a cybersecurity standpoint,” Warren told reporters.

“This is an area where the deputy secretary is very engaged,” he added.

VA is working to implement a two-factor authentication system as part of a federal cybersecurity sprint, according to FCW.

Warren told reporters the department looks to curtail private Internet usage in the workplace in a bid to protect infrastructure.
