Department of Defense Chief Information Officer John Sherman was presented with his 2023 Wash100 Award last week at the Potomac Officers Club’s 4th Annual CIO Summit after delivering an insightful and inspiring opening keynote address.
Executive Mosaic CEO Jim Garrettson joined Sherman on stage to deliver the prestigious accolade and congratulate him on his continued success driving innovation within the DOD.
During his remarks, Sherman gave an update on the DOD’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification program, shared his thoughts on the importance of software modernization and spoke on the importance of speed in thwarting the nation’s pacing challenges.
“Moving from a hardware defined enterprise to a software defined enterprise is going to be critical in our ability to put the PRC back on their heels,” he shared to the in-person audience. “Not to have legacy types of architectures, but adaptable software defined architectures that we can update, be more cyber secure and move to DevSecOps at the speed of mission.”
