BREAKING: Fedscoop reports that John Garstka has replaced Katie Arrington as Chief Information Security Officer at the Office of the Undersecretary for Defense for Sustainment & Acquisition. The Fedscoop article reports Garstka’s role is “Acting.”
Oxebridge was the first source to report that Arrington had been removed from her position over concerns related to ongoing ethics complaints and investigations. A DOD representative has since confirmed privately that issues with her “security clearances” are being looked into.
Jesse Salazar has already taken over Arrington’s management role over CMMC.
Publicly, the DOD continues to refuse to provide any comment on the departure of Arrington.
