Hear what he has to say about the meeting this morning on the Federal Drive.
- Cybersecurity awareness could one day be championed by a character-icon, a lot like Smokey Bear. That's one of the winning ideas in the Cybersecurity Awareness Challenge from the Department of Homeland Security. DHS revealed six winners on Wednesday. They'll use the ideas to help them build a big Cybersecurity Awarness Campaign that launches in October. One of the other winners proposed organizing a 5K race that would call attention to the dangers of malicious botnets.
