Can DHS Push Harder on Biometrics?

President Donald Trump’s Jan. 27 executive order restricting citizens of seven Muslim-majority nations from entering the U.S. for three months also pressures the Department of Homeland Security to develop its biometric entry/exit system in double-time.

DHS said in a Jan. 29 statement that for “the next 90 days, nearly all travelers, except U.S. citizens, traveling on passports from Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Iran, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen will be temporarily suspended from entry to the United States.”

Secretary Carter Says Future is Bright for DOD

Secretary Carter Says Future is Bright for DOD

In his penultimate day as secretary of Defense, Ash Carter reflected on 35 years of transition at the Pentagon and said the one constant has been the commitment to the mission of defending America.

In his farewell remarks to DOD personnel, Carter quipped that there’s a “lot less cigarette smoke” in the halls of the Pentagon compared to when he started, but “the whole force is higher quality, vastly more experienced and draws high talent more widely from all of America than was the case back then. And we’re better and stronger because of it.”

Former Spy Chief Says U.S. Lacks Cyber Framework

As the Trump administration’s transition team continues to announce its selections for key national security positions, one former intelligence chief said the U.S. still lacks a coherent cybersecurity framework and the Trump team lacks a clear expert on the subject.

The Trump team is moving behind the scenes on cybersecurity recruitment. FCW has learned that Karen Evans, National Director of the U.S. Cyber Challenge, is working with the Trump transition team on cybersecurity issues. Evans was administrator of E-Government and Information Technology at the Office of Management and Budget (a job now dubbed “federal CIO”) under President George W. Bush.
