With massive networks at federal government agencies, a workforce clamoring for the ability to work collaboratively and pushes from Congress to move away from legacy systems, cybersecurity is monumental concern.
Nearly every federal organization struggles with cost-effective cybersecurity risk management against the backdrop of today’s advanced threats, the shortage of skilled cybersecurity talent, and countless compliance regulations and security mandates. So can agencies fix their problems with adversaries pounding away at their systems every day?
Two Cisco executives, Will Ash and Doug Cowan, talked with CyberScoop Managing Editor Greg Otto about the challenges that must be faced when dealing with cybersecurity inside the government, how the change doesn’t happen overnight, and what new technologies provide in the way some relief.
