“’We have a large mission within the Department of Homeland Security,’ CBP Chief Information Officer Sonny Bhagowalia said on Federal Monthly Insights — Cloud. ‘In terms of enhancing our nation’s security through innovation, intelligence, collaboration and trust, there are a lot of things that we have to do in technology, which enables our five enduring mission priorities: Counter terrorism, combat transnational crime, secure the border, facilitate lawful trade and protect revenue.’

CBP’s 60,000 employees were not waylaid by the pandemic. Bhagowalia said the objective was and remains to ‘keep the operation up 24/7.’…”

“’Our architecture obviously leverages some of the big vendors, which we don’t talk about for security reasons,’ Bhagowalia said. ‘In addition to that, we’ve overlaid a lot of security and other capabilities to make sure we always protect privacy, ensure that records management is complied with and security is always paramount.’

‘At the end of the day, CIOs are here to serve the mission. And the mission has a lot of needs, especially now with the advent of new emerging technologies and data of all kinds — multimedia data, sensor data — cloud offers some of those advantages,’ he said…” Read the full article here.
