Secret Service Implements Cyber & IT Strategy to Boost Agent Mobility

blankThe U.S. Secret Service have begun to implement its first cyber and information technology strategic plan that covers agency goals to develop a network operations security center and bolster mobility for special agents and uniformed officers, Signal Magazine reported Sunday.

George Seffers writes Kevin Nally, chief information officer of the Secret Service, finalized the strategy nearly a year ago and currently manages the implementation effort.

Nally crafted the plan as part of efforts to ensure that agency personnel have access to communication and information technology devices as well as mobile equipment to collaborate with the Department of Homeland Security and other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.

“We’re looking at becoming operating-system agnostic, so the applications we develop in-house can be used on any type of mobile device,” said Nally.

His office also plans to add voice, video and data capacities to the joint operations center and install ultra high frequency trunking system to offer the agency’s uniformed officers with communications services around Washington.
