US Cybersecurity Strategy - New Cyber24 Podcast





Cybersecurity is an issue making its way to the forefront nationally and in the private sector. According to one study, data breaches exposed 36 billion records in the first half of 2020. And another study indicates 86% of breaches were financially motivated.  In this episode of the CYBER24 podcast, presented by VLCM, former head of the Utah Dept. of Technology Services Mike Hussey and Utah Chief Information Security Officer Phil Bates look at what the US is doing, what role states play, and how the private sector is included and, sometimes, left on its own.
