- 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.

- 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.
