Atlanta CIO Gary Brantley to step down

Atlanta Chief Information Officer Gary Brantley plans to leave city government soon after more than two years in the role, city officials said. In a brief Twitter direct message, Brantley confirmed he had accepted a private-sector “C-suite” job, but said he could not give any more details until his new employer announces it. Brantley, a former CIO for the public school system in DeKalb County, Georgia, was hired by Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms in September 2018, as the city was still recovering from a debilitating ransomware attack that largely defined Bottoms’ first year as mayor.

The watchdog agency assessed a diagram of the Joint Cyber Warfighting Architecture (JCWA) that was available in August.

MS-ISAC hits a big milestone

Since its creation in 2004, the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center has gone from a small coalition of IT officials from the Northeast to a sprawling network where state, local, tribal and territorial governments communicate the latest cyber threats, share best cyber hygiene practices, get risk and vulnerability assessments and sign up for network monitoring services.
