Written by ID Technologies    July 6, 2020

Thinking about the Air Force on an enterprise level will spur efficiency and innovation in cybersecurity across DOD.

 

Wanda Jones-Heath calls herself a “unicorn” at the Defense Department. That’s because she sees her stature as chief information security officer at the Air Force, among her 30-year career in government, as rare for women. She discusses progress the agency is making with bug bounties and how the current pandemic has presented opportunities for further modernization. She also discusses why thinking about the branch on an enterprise level will spur efficiency and innovation in cybersecurity across DOD, especially with organizations like Kessel Run influencing how partnerships at the Air Force contribute to innovative approaches to technology.
