HHS, NASA, SBA Leaders Cite Cybersecurity, Cloud as 2018 IT Priorities

Information technology leaders from the Department of Health and Human Services, Small Business Administration and NASA have outlined their IT priorities for 2018, FedTech reported Friday.

Christopher Wlaschin, chief information security officer at HHS, said the department will prioritize and advance cybersecurity through four IT security areas.

Those areas include protection of high-value assets, new methods to build up its cyber workforce and advancement of the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program.

SBA CIO Maria Roat told the publication that the agency established in the past year the architecture for its cloud migration effort.

“So, this year will be the next piece of that enterprise assessment now that we’ve laid that foundation,” she added.

John Sprague, deputy associate CIO for technology and innovation at NASA, noted that the agency will prioritize data visualization and utilization initiatives this year.
