Mark Riddle is a Senior Program Analyst for the Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO) at the National Archives and Records Administration. He serves as Lead for implementation and oversight activities for the Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) Program. He co-authored the National Institute for Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-171, Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Systems and Organizations (June 2015). This publication recommends standards for protecting CUI in nonfederal electronic environments that may be prescribed in agreements between Federal and non-Federal partners. Mr. Riddle consults with executive branch departments and agencies, and with industry and other non-Federal organizations on the structure and implementation of the CUI program, and its impact on the protection of sensitive information within these entities.
Kimberly Keravuori manages NARA’s regulatory and external policy program and is also ISOO’s lead for CUI policy. Although she drafts and oversees drafting of regulations (among other tasks), she’s never entirely sure that anyone reads them … or, she wasn’t, until a FOIA reg she substantially drafted was selected as the best in the Government. At least one person read it. An attorney with more than 20 years of Government experience in a wide range of Federal legal fields (including extensive background in fiscal/contract, employment, FOIA/Privacy, international, and constitutional law), Kimberly began her Government work as a translator at the age of 14. Her first translation task was the song “Ententanz” (duck dance), on-stage. Yes, she was also required to flap her arms. Scarred for life at 14. Is it any wonder she ended up as an attorney? Between the two, she enjoyed a career in public affairs, as a journalist, graphic designer, and editor, served in the Air Force during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, earned graduate degrees, and raised a child/young adult/small dragon that she is now in the midst of fledging. Formerly on active duty in the US Army, she remains an active JAG officer in the Army Reserves, is a certified mediator, and is a consulting attorney with the Defense Media Activity (Stars & Stripes). Kimberly has lived much of her life overseas and is still conducting tests to answer the time-space conundrum: return to favorite places or explore new ones?
