Melinda Rogers

Golden Gov: Executive of the Year

Melinda Rogers has spent the last decade as a senior official leading the Department of Justice’s IT portfolio — more than eight years as chief information security officer and more recently as chief information officer. In this role, she oversees a $3.1 billion IT portfolio and leads the department’s cybersecurity program, through which her office is driving a push to zero-trust security. “At Justice, we work hard to continue to improve and not become complacent or rest on our laurels,” Rogers told FedScoop recently, pointing to the department’s work around zero trust as an example of that.
