Charlie Armstrong, assistant commissioner and chief information officer at Customs and Border Protection, joined Federal News Radio for an online chat on Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013.

Some of the topics discussed included:

  • updates on the multi-billion dollar Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) program to modernize import and export processing systems;
  • how CBP is planning for a reduced IT budget (the agency receives more IT funding than any other DHS component)
  • how CBP is addressing cybersecurity challenges.
