WASHINGTON D.C., April 5, 2016 – CRM CEO Yong-Gon Chon sat down with Federal Tech Talk’s John Gilroy on Tuesday to discuss the current state of cyber security and the future of cyber risk management. The recorded interview is available on federalnewsradio.com.
In the 40-minute interview, which airs Tuesday at 1pm ET, Mr. Chon discussed the unique security challenges faced by government agencies and their suppliers, including the massive shortage of qualified cyber professionals, the balancing act between compliance and governance, and the exploitable human element in cyber risk.
Mr. Chon and Mr. Gilroy broke down the key lessons learned from the recent rash of high-profile data breaches at government agencies. Reflecting on these breaches, such as the Office of Personnel Management breach in which more than 20 million records were stolen, Mr. Chon said that supplier risk, insider threats, and ineffective internal controls should be top areas of concern for organizations worried about potential data breaches.
In addition to looking back on recent breaches, the interview looked ahead to the next wave of cyber security laws currently making their way through Congress. Mr. Chon discussed the potential impact of the Cyber Security Disclosure Act of 2015, which could upend the roles of C-suite security professionals within public companies and require corporate boards to bring on directors with specific cyber security experience.
The full interview airs on Federal News Radio (1500 AM) on Tuesday, April 5 at 1pm ET. Listen to the taped interview on federalnewsradio.com.
