Danielle Metz has spent much of 2022 leading the charge in the Office of the Secretary of Defense to drive a digital enterprise transformation for all OSD components. Metz was recently named director of the Information Management and Technology directorate in OSD, working with the office’s new CIO Michael Donley to focus on “identifying and integrating IT requirements across Principal Staff Assistants, speaking with a unified voice in coordinating OSD IT requirements with the Joint Service Provider, and providing for regular cybersecurity and technology updates.” At CyberTalks in October, Metz said her biggest focus in the early going to establish that IT enterprise for OSD is developing a governance structure.
