When Suzette Kent was named federal CIO in early 2018, most in the community had never heard of her. Today, many say it’s hard to imagine the last two years without her.
In 2019, she led or lent essential support to a long list of initiatives. The Federal Data Strategy was developed and launched with an aggressive action plan, and Kent took the lead on creating the new Chief Data Officer Council. A long-awaited update to the Trusted Internet Connections policy was finalized, while the Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management policy was similarly updated.
