    Navy CIO Robert Carey was among the first federal CIOs to embrace blogging as a way to keep in touch with his various constituencies, including officers and sailors. Carey believes steps can be taken to embrace new technologies while maintaining security.

    In this second of two parts of an exclusive interview, Carey discusses:

    Securing the new Navy-Marine intranet to debut next year;
    How the Navy employs social networking, though with some security restrictions; and
    Plans to implement secure cloud computing as a way to exploit technical efficincies.

    Carey joined the Navy's Office of CIO in 2000, regularly being elevated from e-business team leader, to director of the Smart Card Office, to deputy CIO for policy and integration to CIO. Previously, Carey served in a variety of engineering and program management leadership positions within the Navy's acquisition community in the undersea warfare domain. A 1982 graduate of the University of South Carolina with a BS in engineering, Carey earned a master of engineering management degree from George Washington University in 1995. As an active member of the Naval Reserve, he holds the rank of commander in the Civil Engineer Corps, Carey was recalled to duty for Operation Desert Storm and more recently as part of a Marine expeditionary force in Iraq's Al Anbar province.
