Jason Gray, chief information officer of the Department of Education, said the department intends to secure its endpoint devices and consolidate some of its cloud platforms in 2020, Federal Times reported Tuesday.

The department introduced a five-year roadmap for its information technology modernization effort in June. “One of the top priorities is going to be stabilizing that and looking for ways to continue our modernization journey along that road map,” Gray said.

Gray added that he wants to be more “proactive” with how the agency evaluates its risks as part of the department’s efforts to improve its cybersecurity posture.
