2013 Security / White House: Intelligence Agencies

Al Tarasiuk, Intelligence Community Chief Information Officer, DNI

Tarasiuk, who has served in his post since February 2011, has had a long career in public service. He spent 23 years at the CIA, the last five as chief information officer, after a postcollege stint at Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. Tarasiuk, who reports to DNI James Clapper, is tasked with crafting, funding, and implementing an IT strategy that can be shared among 17 intelligence agencies. To this end, he leads a council of the agencies' CIOs or their equivalents in a collaborative effort to change a long-standing practice of each agency managing its own IT needs. Tarasiuk brings credibility to the job because of his experience in the CIA, one of the "Big Five" intelligence agencies, along with the National Security Agency, the National Reconnaissance Organization, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. Tarasiuk, 55, was born in Brazil to Eastern European immigrants who ultimately settled in New Jersey, where he graduated from high school in 1975. He earned a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the New Jersey Institute of Technology, at one point living in a funeral home, where he helped out in exchange for free rent. He also has a master's degree from George Washington University. Tarasiuk once worked as a rodeo cowboy and is very fond of muscle cars—he is currently restoring a '71 Chevelle in his spare time. He and his wife, a CIA employee, have three children.
