Agencies recognize that software vendors are the experts in the cyber security field, and they’re virtually begging for stakeholder engagement, so it’s really becoming more and more important to involve yourself in building out requirements, and to meet those voluntary but critical security needs.
Dr. Ron Ross, Senior Computer Scientist and Information Security Researcher at NIST, stressed at yesterday’s immixGroup cyber… Continue

In my last posting I wrote about the advantages of using the Adaptive Project Framework
(APF) to deliver Gov 2.0 projects. I argued that Gov 2.0 needs new management methods to take advantage of the new technologies and deliver on the promise of open, transparent, and accountable government. But Gov 2.0 doesn’t stop at the launch of a successful project. The project must become an enduring process that is… Continue

There must be something in the air. Or is it the water? Over the past couple of weeks there have been some pretty sensational stories about the Intelligence Community. First, we had the Russian spies, then the Washington Post’s expose on the IC (well timed, right before Clapper’s confirmation hearing – but we digress), and stories about the lack of GAO oversight for the community. And, CBS News recently ran a story about how top secret spy work is done in neighborhoods around the Washington DC… Continue

Just before the start of a “Stress, Change and Creative Teaming” workshop, I was testing out my microphone. The program was for managers of a global engineering company. Most of the 50 + particpants were ex-military, now contractors working with commands and brigades based at Ft. Hood, TX or presently stationed overseas. As I called out, “Can people in the back hear me?” a former Sergeant Major who knew me from my work at Ft. Hood (and had recommended me as a speaker) reassured the audience,… Continue

Welcome once again to the Friday’s Food for Thought post. We hope everyone had a productive work week and are gearing up for a relaxing weekend. And, we are deep into vacation season. So, if you are taking some well-needed time off, we hope you enjoy it! Today’s post is about “Knowledge is Power.” What does that mean? How does that tie into what we do? Think about it. The core of geospatial intelligence is about getting the right information (whether from imagery and mapping) and getting it… Continue

Let’s face it. DARPA is always on the bleeding-edge when it comes to developing advanced technologies for defense. Just when you think they have outdone themselves, they come up with something even more mind-blowing. DARPA’s latest foray is into developing technologies that actually see through concrete walls, meaning there is no place for insurgents to hide.
CNET broke this story today.
The purpose of this new DARPA… Continue

The job of being the chief executive of the intelligence bureaucracy, which also includes the daily White House intelligence briefings, is a dual-hatted role that can challenge even the most hard-working and ambitious DNI. This, according to a recent article in GovtTech
(taken from the National Journal), which stated that the first two directors of National Intelligence, John Negroponte and Mike McConnell,… Continue

The Associated Press just broke a story
about Obama wanting Dennis Blair, as the new and not-yet-announced-or-confirmed DNI, to take on a more streamlined office — and focus exclusively on giving strong direction to the nation’s 16 intelligence agencies.
While the source for this story was anonymous (which is often the case), so here’s the noteworthy paragraph from the… Continue

President-elect Obama has certainly drawn plenty of comparisons to President Clinton. From bringing on former Clintonites like John D. Podesta and Rahm Emanuel, it seems that team Clinton will be back in office on January 20th.
What is really interesting is that Obama is also being compared to Clinton when he first came into office regarding weak foreign policy and national security experience. The Public Record just came out with an article
that showcases these comparisons… Continue

For those of you who have not read David Ignatius editorial in the Washington Post this morning, it is worthy of checking out. He breaks down all of the challenges facing the intelligence community and what should be done under the Obama administration. From highlighting the “left-right slugfest” over the fate of the community, to discussing how the new DNI should be the “Warren Buffet” of intelligence.
Ignatius states that the new DNI should “be the chief executive of a diverse… Continue
