Since then, Brian Truchon, a thirty-year veteran of the Bureau who has been the Assistant Director of its IT Services Division, has been the Acting CIO. Whoever is appointed as the FBI CIO will lead the FBI's $1 billion IT operation forward in an era of cloud computing and data center consolidation.
