USMEPCOM Takes Honorable Mention at Annual DoD CIO Awards

USMEPCOM’s Information Technology Directorate was awarded the 2018 Department of Defense Chief Information Officer Award at a November 29 ceremony at the Pentagon.

The award recognizes individuals and teams within the DOD IT community for exceptional achievements in delivering forward-leaning and strategically significant technology capabilities and IT management practices.

The USMEPCOM IT Directorate earned recognition for contributing to the DOD IT environment and USMEPCOM by improving the command’s cyber security posture, enhanced protection of personally identifiable information, end-to-end data encryption, and exchange of electronic documents with recruiting services as well as enabling electronic transfer of enlistment contracts and emergency data forms. This lays the groundwork for future paperless processing of military applicants, and the upgrade to a cloud-based platform represents a major technological leap forward, enabling significantly enhanced usability, reliability, and system security for years to come.
