New Navy CIO's First Blog Post on DONCIO Blog is his last

The CIO's Last Blog

By Terry Halvorsen
Published, December 1, 2010

I'm sure you'll find it interesting and maybe a bit ironic that the new CIO's first blog is his last blog. I believe in the value of social media and believe it has its place in the Department of the Navy. However, as I am focusing on finishing up my duties as Deputy Commander of Navy Cyber Forces and taking the reigns as DON CIO, blogging must be a lower priority. There is much work to be done, and I plan to fully engage with the Navy, Marine Corps and Secretariat level leaders through face-to-face meetings when possible.

More HERE.  Change is good...

Captain Lambert,

I am afraid that I am unaware of what DON CIO really does to insure the security of our great country. It would appear to the average citizen of this United States that you folks in the business of claiming to "DOMINATE" information are not up to the task of controlling such minor irritations such as wikileaks. What say you?

Very Respectfully,

I'm a bit curious. Is the requirement for a .mil address to access Pulse a new category of security classification? Or simply a case of yet another federal entity putting not-classified information outside the reach of citizens?

Yes, the federal government does have legitimately confidential information and yes it has secrets to keep. But the system in law and regulation requires these to be labeled CONFIDENTIAL and SECRET.

Strikes me that bureaucracies that pseudo-classify non-security information invite (and perhaps demand) Wikileaks and other such rogue operations to use their digital can openers and expose to the public the contents of this can of worms.

It is said that an organization takes on the personality of the leadership. This is the main reason NNWC failed as a TYCOM and is such a dysfunctional organization. Unfortunately, we promote the individual(s) responsible and give them an even more influential platform. And we wonder why so much of our talent leaves? Please don't waste another opportunity to make a difference, Mr. H.
