Venice Goodwine Takes Over as Air Force Chief Information Officer

Venice Goodwine has begun serving as the Department of the Air Force’s chief information officer, succeeding 2023 Wash100 awardee Lauren Knausenberger. A spokesperson said Goodwine’s term started on Aug. 13.

Goodwine is responsible for a $17 billion portfolio and roughly 30,000 cyber and information technology employees worldwide. She also oversees the data and artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and enterprise IT directorates.

Goodwine is expected to continue digital transformation efforts such as the ongoing rollout of zero trust, for which the service is targeting completion by 2027.

She is also leading the enterprise IT-as-a-service program, which is in its first wave of implementation. EITaaS was among her top priorities in her previous role as the Air Force’s enterprise IT director.

Goodwine was formerly the Department of Agriculture’s chief information security officer and, earlier, a senior cybersecurity officer with the Air Force. Before that, she was part of the U.S. Marine Corps.

Her educational background includes a Master of Business Administration degree from William Carey University and a master’s degree in technology from the University of Maryland, College Park, Federal News Network reported.
