CIO, FDIC

Sylvia Burns stepped into her role when Howard Whyte left for the private sector; prior to that, she had served as deputy CIO for enterprise strategy and helped lay the foundation of FDIC’s zero-trust security architecture. An advocate of classifying data and establishing “micro-perimeters” around the most valuable assets, her assent couldn’t be more timely with President Biden’s new cybersecurity executive order pushing zero-trust and secure cloud services. Triple-hatted, Burns also serves as FDIC’s chief privacy officer and IT director.
