Aaron Weis, the newly appointed chief information officer of the U.S. Navy, has said he will leverage his nearly three decades of private sector experience and his time as a senior adviser to the Department of Defense’s CIO to oversee the service branch’s information technology efforts, Fifth Domain reported Tuesday.

“Being able to operate at OSD … to shepherd the development of the digital modernization strategy that came out of DoD CIO, as well as the enterprise cloud strategy — lot of that is timely and I think it’s relevant context for what we’re going to have to face and deal with here at [the] Navy," he told reporters at the Pentagon.

Weis mentioned how industry helps promote accountability with regard to cyber and IT performance and the Navy’s need for a guiding strategy.

“I think it’s accountability along with the ability to move the levers around funding and operational elements along with a guiding vision strategy that we need to be able to apply here,” Weis said.

As Navy CIO, Weis will be responsible for four directorates: chief information security officer, chief digital officer, chief technology officer and chief digital strategy officer.
