“After a long stint as the deputy director of the center for information technology at the NIH, Stacie Alboum is about to head to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. At the ACT-IAC emerging technology conference in Cambridge, Maryland earlier this week, Federal Drive with Tom Temin caught up with Alboum to discuss what her new job will be all about…
Stacie Alboum: I’ll be joining the CIO organization as the Deputy Director for enterprise strategy.
Tom Temin: What does that mean, enterprise strategy? Enterprise IT strategy? Or what should the FDIC do for a living?
Stacie Alboum: So the FDIC has quite an impressive IT operation over there. And I’m going over there, one of the big things I’ll be doing is leading the development of the next IT strategic plan. And working with the IT leadership team there under Sylvia Burns’ leadership, of course, to modernize the IT infrastructure and architecture. And what I’m most excited about, the role that I’ll get to play in this new position is engaging and partnering with the programs across the agency. So getting to learn about their business, and more about the mission, and ensuring that IT is being responsive to their needs and fulfilling them. And obviously, I’ve been very fortunate to support so many incredible missions across the federal government over the last two decades. This is my fifth agency, and I’m going from spending the last 15 years supporting science missions. So protecting people’s health, to going to more of the financial industry. But personally, maintaining the stability in the public confidence in the nation’s financial system is a pretty important job. And I’m just really honored to join the FDIC family be a part of it…” Read the full interview here.
