Lauren Knausenberger, Chief Information Officer, United States Air Force...

Lauren Knausenberger has been with the US Air Force in a number of guises, joining as Director of Cyberspace Innovation in 2017 before becoming Chief Transformation Officer two years later. Last August, she became Chief Information Officer. The new role is, in Knausenberger’s typically no-nonsense words, “really, really hard.” More stakeholders to manage, more complexity and problem solving across the board, for everyone, at scale.

“Sometimes we’re deploying too many to too many different environments. As the CIO, I look at that and make sure we have a really robust cloud environment and that we’re putting in place the right incentives to make sure people are using that enterprise environment so we don’t have development teams that have to maintain 20 different baselines.
