The SOSSEC Cyber Talk Series
Cyber Talk with Fortinet
Drawing on his 30-plus years working on cyber in the US Government and his perspective at a global cybersecurity firm, Fortinet Field CISO Jim Richberg will discuss the following:
- Myths and misperceptions: cyber fundamentals clear to the government that the private sector does not understand as well and vice versa — and a key area that both overlook.
- Continuous diagnostics and mitigation: are we at the forefront of a revolution in
capability driven by AI-enabled automation?
- The paradox of cyber metrics: why we tend to measure what is easiest instead of what is most useful. This applies to situational awareness of threats as well as cybersecurity performance!
- “Doing more with less”: the US Government has yet to feel the full weight of budgetary pressure COVID has imposed on state and local government, but the tide is likely to turn in the next few years.
