To be clear, NGA recently passed several key audits required for its unclassified systems. But Gary Buchanan, the chief information security officer at NGA, said at a recent AFCEA DC panel these audits are actually helping the agency better protect their data and networks instead of just pointing out problems. He was joined by David McKeown, the deputy CISO at the Defense Department and Angel Phaneuf, the CISO for the Army Software Factory. The panel was moderated by Federal News Network Executive Editor Jason Miller.
