DISA’s cloud office busts a myth for warfighters; Getting OPM to “yes”

On today’s episode of The Daily Scoop Podcast, the new National Defense Strategy the DoD is working on could include a larger cyber component than it ever has before, OPM’s new Talent Surge Executive Playbook will give agencies tools to hire and keep the employees they need, & a reorganization at DISA is turning out to be a shot in the arm for that agency’s cloud office.

The new National Defense Strategy the Defense Department is working on could include a larger cyber component than it ever has before. The Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for cyber policy, Mieke Eoyang, said recently the next NDS will include cyber as a tool. Senior Vice President for Defense Programs at Owl Cyber Defense and former USMC Deputy Commandant for Information, Dan O’Donohue explains what “cyber as a tool” means, and what he’ll look for, cyber-wise, in the next NDS.

The Office of Personnel Management’s new Talent Surge Executive Playbook will give agencies tools to hire and keep the employees they need. It’s out just a short time after the Biden administration listed “strengthening the federal workforce” as its number one priority in the President’s Management Agenda Vision. Host of Chief HRO.com and former Chief Human Capital Officer at the Department of Homeland Security, Jeff Neal tells The Daily Scoop Podcast how agency leaders can make the most of the new (and old) concepts in the Playbook.

A reorganization at the Defense Information Systems Agency is turning out to be a shot in the arm for that agency’s cloud office. The Director of DISA, Lt. Gen. Robert Skinner, says one goal of the reorg is to simplify its structure. In this highlight from the new episode of the Let’s Talk About I-T podcast, Director of the Hosting and Compute Center at DISA, Sharon Woods tells Billy Mitchell in her portfolio, the reorg has done some interesting things.
