Techies: Pay Attention
In a striking departure from the hush-hush culture of intelligence community IT, the CIO’s office for the Director of National Intelligence is running an open online forum about certification and accreditation issues, as well as other technology matters.
It might not seem like it, but this is very, very important. It is probably the most open and engaging effort related to reform I’ve seen (hosting blogs behind OSC firewalls don’t count) and if there is one area that needs a shake-up, it is IC IT. If you are involved in the field and care about related issues at all, get on the blog and start weighing in.
Bravo, General, Bravo.
