John Sherman, chief information officer for the intelligence community, said the IC plans to establish a new program executive office to advance the development of new information technology capabilities, FCW reported Tuesday. Sherman said Tuesday that the community wants the new PEO to have in-person access to subject matter experts during the Department of Defense Intelligence Information System Worldwide Conference in Tampa, Fla.

The proposed office would also continue work on chat and secure file transfer capabilities. In addition to the release of a cloud strategy and work on a new data strategy, Sherman also announced that the IC finalized its cybersecurity implementation plan.

"Using a new approach that we call the cybersecurity performance evaluation model, we started just this last month to receive our first tranche of [critical infrastructure protection]-related asset inventory data into our IC security coordination center," he said.
