Aaron Weis, the newly appointed chief information officer of the Department of the Navy, has announced the appointment of Tom Sasala as chief data officer and Jane Rathbun as chief technology officer, FedScoop reported Monday.

Prior to the Navy, Sasala served in a similar capacity in the U.S. Army. Rathbun will continue to serve as deputy assistant secretary of the Navy for command, control, computers, intelligence, information operations and space in addition to her role as CTO.

Weis said Vice Adm. Matthew Kohler and Lt. Gen. Loretta Reynolds have assumed the roles of deputy CIOs of the Navy and Marine Corps, respectively. The Navy is set to announce the newly appointed chief information security officer and chief digital innovation officer within weeks, Weis added.

The CDO, CTO, CISO and the chief digital innovation officer roles were the four directorates the Navy established to support the restructured CIO function in response to an external review of the department’s cybersecurity posture.
