CIA Continues Partnership with Amazon Web Services to Boost Cloud Push

Earlier this week, the director of digital futures at the CIA’s Directorate of Digital Innovation affirmed the agency’s push towards cloud computing, stating that the bureau has “overachieved” in its efforts to leverage the technology.

Speaking at the Public Sector Breakfast at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas, Teresa Smetzer said that adapting cloud computing 4 years ago was a risky move that paid off. She added that it allowed the agency to keep up with the pace of the commercial industry.

She also revealed that AWS’s Secret Region which went live last week now allows all 16 agencies to interoperate across all levels of data classification.
