    Roopangi Kadakia, who most recently served as web services executive in NASA’s Office of the CIO, has been appointed CISO at the Department of Veterans Affairs. She will start in the new role on July 24.

    Kadakia replaces Brian Burns, who left in June for another public sector job. "She will be the fifth permanent or acting CISO at VA over the last 12 months," writes Eric White for Federal News Radio.
