- We're hearing more and more about the human element in relation to the cybersecurity equation. Hackers are getting more sophisticated, while so-called "social engineers" make a point of exploiting the ignorance of workers within an organization. But, what about the future generations of cyber-experts? What steps can you take to make sure you're training young people to be responsible as well as cyber-savvy? Melissa Hathaway, former Acting Senior Director for Cyberspace, tells Federal News Radio there are four categories of cyber-criminals you should know about.
- Most of the nation's critical infrastructure is owned by the private sector. Yet the government has a role because a cyber attack disrupting a utility could quickly become a public safety problem. A big component to the public-private approach is mutual information sharing. Congress wanted to know how that's going, so it asked the Government Accountability Office to take a look. Dave Powner, director of information technology issues at the Government Accountability Office has details this morning on the Federal Security Spotlight at 10:00.
