TYSONS CORNER, Va. & SAN FRANCISCO – April 17, 2018 – Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), first in delivering “aha” moments from machine data, congratulates Matthew Shallbetter, director of security design and innovation at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), who was honored by FCW as a recipient of a 2018 Federal 100 Award. The Federal 100 Awards recognize individuals from government and industry for technical know-how, innovative ideas and leadership acumen in federal IT. A full list of this year’s winners can be found here.
In the past year, Mr. Shallbetter has been instrumental in building the HHS Cyber Automation Program (HCAP), of which Splunk is a partner, designed to greatly increase the department’s overall cybersecurity posture. Shallbetter worked across multiple different operating divisions and sub-agencies within HHS, harnessing relationships and leadership skills to earn the support of nine CISOs, nine CIOs and dozens of staff, overcoming both technical and organizational data silo challenges. As a result, HCAP reports a significant improvement in cybersecurity data confidence levels across HHS.
“Mr. Shallbetter is one of the unsung heroes that make our federal government successful – the skilled technical implementers whose leadership builds consensus and creates real, lasting change,” said Kevin Davis, vice president of public sector, Splunk.
“I’m honored to be a recipient of a 2018 Federal 100 Award and thrilled to be part of a mission-driven team including agency and private sector partners,” Shallbetter said.
