Navy IT modernization to continue 'on course' without Modly

Thomas Modly probably won't be remembered as an advocate for the Navy's IT modernization, but he did play a huge role in recent years shaping the service's current cybersecurity priorities and elevating its CIO position. Modly resigned from his secretary role Tuesday after he faced public criticism for ousting the commanding officer of an aircraft carrier who had raised concerns about the Navy’s handling of a coronavirus outbreak on his ship. Navy CIO Aaron Weis told FedScoop Modly's strategy for IT modernization will continue in his absence. “I foresee no changes in the direction or strategy regarding my role as Department of the Navy Chief Information Officer,” Weis said. “We are continuing to work the path outlined by Secretary Spencer in 2019 and followed through by Secretary Modly.” Jackson Barnett has the story.

DHS adapts TIC 3.0 to telework

With federal employees teleworking en masse, the Department of Homeland Security has issued guidance on how to adapt the Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) 3.0 policy to remote work scenarios. Telework presents “unique” cybersecurity risks necessitating new security patterns and capabilities to detect, mitigate and prevent such threats, according to temporary TIC guidance released by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. The guidance presents three alternatives for teleworkers to communicate with agency-sanctioned cloud services. Dave Nyczepir has the guidance.

Dcode launches VC arm

Dcode started out as a tech accelerator, helping startups connect with federal agencies that want to do business with them. Now several years later, the firm has expanded to offer training for government officials and, most recently, help innovative tech companies reach strategic investors dedicated to the missions of the federal government. CEO Meagan Metzger told FedScoop “the venture capital market still woefully doesn’t understand the government,” and that's a big reason why she wanted to launch Dcode Capital — an “invitation-only network of angel investors, VCs, and technology and government legends” to invest in larger rounds of funding for tech companies serving the federal government. “Sometimes getting a VC to put capital into a company that will really exponentially help them expand in this market can be a challenge,” Metzger said. Billy Mitchell spoke with Metzger.

The scoop on fed IT during COVID-19

We're back with a new episode of Let’s Talk About IT — but this one is a little bit different.

Zero-trust identity and access security tools that can scale quickly in the cloud offer an effective way to balance a surge in remote user access and the need to manage access privileges quickly, according to Duo Security’s Sean Frazier.
