Fund Cybersecurity

Did you know the 2017 Federal Government budget allocates more than $19 billion to fund cybersecurity initiatives across the nation?  This is greater than 35 percent increase over the fiscal year 2016 enacted level. Used wisely, these resources should help increase national cybersecurity protections, and disrupt and deter malicious actors.  Share your thoughts.  Is this level increase sufficient to  implement and sustain effective cyber protection strategies, or merely a drop in the bucket - but trending in the right direction?

Connect. Share. Collaborate

There really is strength in numbers.  Knowledge sharing and management reinforces lessons learned and decreases the likelihood of harm because of weakened links in the protection chain.
