Classified telework for the DOD?

The Department of Defense has seen great success in rolling out a new remote work environment in recent months. And now, CIO Dana Deasy hopes to expand that environment to accommodate classified work as the department considers making telework a long-term fixture. Deasy said his office is running “a lot of pilots” to improve the security of the Commercial Virtual Remote Environment that has supported more than a million users working remotely during the coronavirus pandemic. In a press briefing Thursday, Deasy also had updated on the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) cloud program and the expansion of the Air Force's Platform One as an enterprise service.

FBI wants clearer paths to unclassified data

The FBI is rethinking how it organizes its unclassified data, and it's moving it to the cloud to enable remote access.

So, the FBI wants to tag, flag and move those files to a lower-classification environment, Gurvais Griss, assistant director of the Science and Technology Branch at the FBI Laboratory, said during an AFCEA Bethesda forum Thursday. “At the lab … we have systems, business processes, administrative actions that previously were done on the higher classification network — not necessarily because they require that level of protection. It’s just we organically designed it where people felt comfortable,” he said. Dave Nyczepir has the story.
