When you work for the nation's recordkeeper, how does that affect your job as the agency's cybersecurity guru?

Leo Scanlon, director of IT security programs at the National Archives in College Park, Md., discusses the challenges of cybersecurity at an agency charged with doing records management for a collection of 13 billion documents dating back to the founding of our nation.
