Chairman Tom Wheeler said he wants to build on the initial success of the critical infrastructure cybersecurity framework released by the White House in February. He said it's not a matter of new regulations, but creating a joint approach to improving the network security across the entire communications sector. Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) renews hope for Congress to pass information sharing legislation this year.
By September, the Navy anticipates it will have retaken full ownership of its main IT network after having outsourced it a decade earlier. The service says it wants to find ways to bring innovation into NMCI, but vendors will have to meet some checkpoints along the way.
Haley Van Dyck will move on from her role at the Office of Management and Budget at the end of August after more than two years. She oversaw the innovation portfolio for the E-Government and IT office.

The former FAA and DHS CIO is taking a third tour of duty in government and will replace Simon Szykman.
The first solicitation will address near-term fixes for the current application. The second one will look to commercial technology for a wholesale replacement of the scheduling application. VA says it will build off the contest it ran in 2013 where it awarded $3 million to competitors to develop VISTA-friendly scheduling software.

It keeps getting easier to manufacture a counterfeit computer chip. Experts say federal information systems increasingly are at risk because of flaws in their supply chains. It is not just a question of fake parts. Genuine ones that have been tampered with, or are just poorly made, can cause damage. The National Institute of Standards and Technology is revising guidelines for agencies to help them secure their supply chains. Jon Boyens is an IT specialist in the security outreach and integration group at NIST. He spoke with Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive.

Dirk Rankin is the chief technology officer for the National Counterterrorism Center and the co-chairman of the Data Aggregation Working Group. Paul Reynolds is the other co-chairman. In part two of their interview, they tell executive editor Jason Miller about the DAWG's role in creating a secure information sharing environment. Read Jason's related article.
