The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity award will converge the heterogeneous IT architectures aboard Navy ships - all 630 of them - into a single, standards based architecture.
Citing threats from hackers, US won't release security details for federal health care website
The Defense Information Systems Agency, which serves as the broker between Defense Department components and commercial providers of cloud computing services, says the certification standards it set for commercial providers may be too arduous for vendors. DoD also launched five pilots to test the use of commercial cloud providers and is reassessing how it develops cloud requirements.
The National Security Agency closed down an office dedicated to mobility, because devices and apps have become part of the fabric of everything the agency does. But NSA, like all agencies, still must figure out how to secure mobile devices using derived credentials.
Dawn Leaf, Labor's deputy chief information officer, said the agency is moving to a centralized infrastructure and hopes to give its bureaus a platform on which to build mission-critical apps.
Todd Weller of Hexis Cyber discusses the types of security threats federal agencies are facing on this week's Federal Tech Talk radio show.

Bob Brese is leaving government after almost 30 years, including the last 11 at the Energy Department.
The fast-growing number of devices connected to the Internet means enterprises need to rethink their approaches to cybersecurity. Cyber expert Melissa Hathaway says we're at a cyber inflection point. She's the president of Hathaway Global Strategies and former director of the Joint Interagency Cyber Task Force. She joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the top concerns for cybersecurity.
Agencies are struggling to find a good way to ensure employees have access to only the information they are supposed to have access to. Now, one could be close to a solution. The Air Force is launching a pilot program to test role-based authentication. Federal News Radio's Executive Editor Jason Miller joined Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive with details. Read Jason's related article.
The service will test out a role-based authentication technology on an application in the MilCloud run by DISA. Frank Konieczny, the Air Force's chief technology officer, said the pilot could move into full production in six months. DoD is considering adding the role-based capability to the JIE framework.
The Army has thousands of personnel working full-time on cyber, but so far, those soldiers have no dedicated career path. That may be about to change.
Agencies are spending billions of dollars on IT in the human resources arena, yet they are not getting billions of dollars in value. Former DHS Chief Human Capital Officer Jeff Neal says that has to change.
Gary Wyckoff, the chief information officer of the Office of Naval Research, said ONR is on the cusp of putting several applications in the cloud. He said mobility is a more difficult road to travel.
The Defense Department soon will name pilot programs for putting more sensitive data in a cloud that's not run by the military. More broadly, the DoD chief information officer plans to change the way the military uses and manages its network. Federal News Radio's Executive Editor Jason Miller joined Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss where DoD is heading. Read Jason's related article.
Terry Halvorsen, DoD's acting chief information officer, is planning to change the way the military uses and manages its network. The Joint Information Environment is driving many of the modernization efforts across DoD.
The Securities and Exchange Commission is responsible for billions of financial trade records a day, but it took the agency weeks and months and analyze them. The SEC quietly found a way to speed up that process — and save about $3 million at the same time. In part four of our special report, ,Rainmakers and Money Savers, Federal News Radio goes behind the scenes of the Securities and Exchange Commission to examine the work federal employees are doing on a daily basis, resulting in millions of dollars going straight into the federal coffers.
In order to stay on the cutting edge of mission-focused innovation, the Air Force Research Lab's Information Directorate in Rome, N.Y. conducts research on matters regarding command, control, communications, cyber and intelligence, better known as C4I . On this edition of AFCEA Answers, we'll learn more about the activities of the AFRL Information Directorate from its director, George Duchak. He'll tell us how a newly-developed device that mimics the human brain - a neuromorphic computer - may someday help future Air Force officers make better and faster decisions. We'll also learn how AFRL scientists are teaming with local students to determine how to commercialize the results of their research. And, on this edition of AFCEA Answers, you can glean insights from Mr. Duchak on how to improve the acquisition of information technology.
A large chunk of the government IT workforce that's charged with implementing the Homeland Security Department's new continuous diagnostics and mitigation initiative still doesn't know much about it. The lack of awareness is most acute with agency inspectors general. But those that have pressed forward with CDM say their networks have already become more secure or less costly.
David Rubal, Public Sector Pre-Sales Consulting Manager with Tableau Software, will discuss how his company is helping agencies analyze and process big data.
