Karen Evans

National Director, U.S. Cyber Challenge

Karen Evans may no longer be working in the federal government, but as national director of the U.S. Cyber Challenge — created to “identify, attract, recruit and place the next generation of cybersecurity professionals” — she still has a profound impact on the federal IT community. Evans was a member of the Trump transition team, and under President George W. Bush, she was administrator of the Office of Electronic Government and Information Technology in the Office of Management and Budget — the role that served as the precursor to what is now the U.S. CIO. She passed on to FedScoop the best advice she’s ever gotten: “Be nice to the people on the way up, many of them will be the same people you see on the way down,” she said.
