Guy Cavallo has now been the chief information officer of the Office of Personnel Management for going on two years. During that time, he has prioritized driving digital transformation within the agency, notably by shifting the agency’s security architecture to a zero-trust model and delivering better digital services for OPM’s federal customers. The agency in late 2021 received money through the Technology Modernization Fund to support its zero-trust journey and Cavallo said that made it easier to take the steps needed to get OPM where it needed to go for better cybersecurity. “We were going to do zero trust even without that money,” Cavallo told FedScoop this year. “It just would’ve taken me longer because — you know the budget cycle in government — I inherited a budget when I got to OPM that had been decided two years earlier without zero trust.”
