Vivek KundraIn case you missed him, Federal CIO Vivek Kundra was on Capitol Hill yesterday reiterating the administration’s intent to move more government data online. “We’re ensuring that we create a much more transparent and open government so the American people know what’s going,” said Kundra, speaking before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

What’s ahead
Back in March, Obama named Vivek Kundra to the position of federal CIO. At the time, Kundra was serving as Washington, D.C.’s chief technology officer, a role in which he implemented a “digital public square.” (Most notably, Kundra’s office created the D.C. Digital Public Square website.) Now Kundra is intent on bringing greater IT investment and cybersecurity initiatives to the federal government. So, how might those initiatives play out?
