Duncan McCaskill

Defense Leadership

In April, after serving nearly two years as the Navy’s Chief Data and AI Officer, and four years before that as the service’s chief analytics officer, Duncan McCaskill took a new role with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency as a technical director for mission engineering. McCaskill said in a note announcing his departure that “it was an honor and a privilege” to serve in the Navy, telling those in the Naval data, analytics, and AI community to
“keep fighting and Don’t Give Up The Ship!” During his time as the Navy’s CDAO, McCaskill oversaw the management, governance and use of data and analysis across the entire span of U.S. Naval missions and functions. He also served as the program owner for Jupiter, the Navy’s enterprise data environment, the largest mission space within the DOD CDAO Advana Platform.
