Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

But DISA will never have unlimited resources, so it's now moving toward a "risk management" approach to cybersecurity: Accepting risk in some areas so that it can make sure that what really matters is highly secure. The risk management executive is a new position within the agency's organizational chart. DISA Risk Management Executive Mark Orndorff talked about the new cyber philosophy with Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu.

It finds that far too many of DoD's own networks aren't up to the challenge of defending against amateur cyber attackers. On In Depth with Francis Rose, Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu talks about it as part of this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.
