TYSONS CORNER, Va. & SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 17, 2018--
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.

to be part of a mission-driven team including agency and private sector
