Jen Easterly

Golden Gov: Executive of the Year

As the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency for the last year and a half, Jen Easterly has overseen a major transformation in the way the federal government protects its networks — namely through the adoption of zero-trust security practices and better management of its software supply chain. Earlier this year, Easterly and CISA launched a campaign called “Shields Up” through which the agency and its partners aim “to help individuals and organizations defend against cyber intrusions, particularly from Russia.” In an op-ed on CyberScoop, Easterly wrote: “With each of us playing our part, we can make it so that our adversaries will have to beat all of us to beat one of us.”
