Katy Mann, vice president of federal for Okta, is pioneering efforts to drive the adoption of zero trust, multi-factor authentication, and modern citizen services while securing the identities of 24+ million federal workers and citizens. In partnership with Mann’s Okta team, agencies are moving from processing paper and expensive legacy technologies to secure digital services aligned with the Biden administration’s customer experience and cybersecurity executive orders. Mann’s team is helping a DOD agency secure the identities of 5 million personnel through MFA and unifying 200+ applications in the cloud. Mann has also supported the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in providing equitable healthcare access to vulnerable communities. Her team helped build the cloud-based Quality Payment Program; today, 15% of Medicare claims are submitted via Okta-enabled API.
