Executive Director, Office of Identity Credential and Access Management

Daniel Galik, PMP, CISSP, CISA

The Office of Identity, Credential and Access Management(OICAM) contributes to a safe and secure environment for the Department of Veterans Affairs through ensuring trust in our VA workforce - appointees, employees, contractors, and affiliates.  As the Executive Director, Mr. Galik serves as the lead for ICAM efforts for the VA, managing the Department-wide process of ensuring that people who access VA facilities and IT systems are identity-proofed, trusted, and credentialed at the appropriate level to carry out the work they are assigned.  This is accomplished through the following: the Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12)/Credential Management (CM) Program Management Office (PMO), the Access and Identity Management (AIM) PMO, the Personnel Security and Suitability (PSS) PMO, and the Security Investigations Center (SIC).  HSPD-12 is the government-wide Policy for a Common Identification Standard for Federal Employees and Contractors, issued in 2011, to ensure the use of the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credential is required as the common means of authentication for access to VA’s facilities, networks and information systems (logical and physical access controls).  The AIM PMO supports the defining of requirements to establish consistent VA-wide solutions for identifying VA users for the purpose of managing access to information technology systems, data, and resources while ensuring an individual’s privacy.  PSS PMO establishes and enforces VA compliance with personnel security and suitability policies and regulations.  The Security and Investigations Center (SIC) processes and adjudicates background investigations for all moderate risk, high risk public trust, and national security positions for
federal employees and contractors.  Mr. Galik is also assigned responsibility as the OSP Reconstitution Manager (RM) for all phases of the Reconstitution process
