What's the Security Tipping Point? with Mike Watson

About This Episode

Mike Watson, CISO for the Commonwealth of Virginia, joins the podcast this week and shares perspective on the challenges and opportunities for security teams at the state and local level. He recounts a 2009 ransomware incident and details just how sophisticated ransomware attackers have become in the ensuing years since.

He provides perspective on shared responsibility, security standards, and compliance baselines of “good,” walking the fine line of multi-factor authentication, security ubiquity, and why he has optimism for the security path ahead (HINT: It involves security as part of the process, not bolted on after the fact).
