Maj. Gen. Matt Easley, who most recently served as director of cybersecurity and chief information security officer at the U.S. Army, has taken on a new assignment as deputy principal information operations adviser at the Department of Defense.
“Matt has set us up on an awesome path to zero trust for both IT and Operational Technology. The Army’s FISMA scorecard under his leadership is the best across the entire DoD,” Iyer wrote.
Easley assumed the CISO role at the service branch in September 2020 and received promotion to the rank of major general in December of the same year.
He delivered a closing keynote address to the Potomac Officers Club’s “The Cost of AI” event on Nov. 9, 2021, and spoke about the challenges defense agencies face as they strive to implement enterprise-level, AI-based technology. Visit the POC Events page to hear his full speech on-demand.
