Mischel Kwon is president of Mischel Kwon Associates, and former director of the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team at the Department of Homeland Security. She shared her Top 3 for 2015 on In Depth with Francis Rose. Kwon says "nerd wars" are the fastest growing form of insider threat.

Maj. Gen. Dale Meyerrose, USAF retired, Meyerrose Group

Major General Dale Meyerrose (US Air Force ret.) was the first Chief Information Officer of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. In his Top 3 for 2015, he suggests Congressional response isn't enough. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said he believes ongoing tensions that social media highlights don't get enough attention from leaders in the federal government.

Dave McClure, Chief Strategist, Veris Group

Four new pieces of cybersecurity legislation give federal IT leaders some new tools to deal with network and information security. But that law may be responding to threats -- or problems -- that are being overcome by events. Responding to the security and privacy challenges of the Internet of Things may require a new level of thinking and legislation. Dave McClure is chief strategist of the Veris Group, and former Associate Administrator of the Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies at the General Services Administration. In his Top 3 for 2015 and on In Depth with Francis Rose, he says the coming year will be the breakout for the Internet of Things.
