The lab that oversees cybersecurity research and standards at the National Institute of Standards and Technology has a new leader. Chuck Romine took over at the Information Technology Laboratory at NIST about a month ago, after Cita Furlani announced she was retiring.

Romine said the “ubiquity of computing devices” is driving his future vision of ITL.

“That’s going to have such a transformative effect on the IT space that I’m convinced that we really have to tackle that in a very meaningful way at ITL,” Romine said in an interview on In Depth with Francis Rose.

Cloud interoperability will also be an important area the lab will focus on, he said.
