John Zangardi: DHS to Form Cloud Steering Group

John Zangardi, chief information officer at the Department of Homeland Security, said at a cybersecurity forum last week that DHS will establish a group to help drive its cloud migration efforts, FCW reported Wednesday.

He told audience at the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association’s 2018 Cyber Technology Summit the department currently works to migrate 52 of its approximately 584 information technology applications to the cloud.

“The idea here is to establish a stretch goal as we move forward over the next year,” Zangardi added.

The report noted that DHS’ cloud steering group will operate at an undersecretary level and consist of department executives that include the chief privacy officer, chief procurement officer, chief security officer and CIOs.
