TYSONS CORNER, VA, March 26, 2020 — Allison Patrick, senior vice president of Maximus’ federal business, said that cybersecurity should be a foundational element of government technology projects as digital threats have increased in sophistication, ExecutiveBiz reported March 18.

In a Nextgov guest piece published March 17, Patrick wrote that Suzette Kent, federal chief information officer and a 2020 Wash100 winner, wants agencies to embed cybersecurity measures as part of her 2020 IT Agenda.

The agenda touched on various topics such as data sharing and collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security, automated continuous monitoring, and identity and access management.

“Cyber threats are always evolving; thus, the government must continuously evolve its own technology to meet these new challenges,” Patrick noted.
