What does the CISO role look like at the state level in the United States?

We got to speak with the first CISO of the State of California, Mark Weatherford, to get his perspective. He also has vast experience in the commercial sectors, and the comparison helps to highlight the differences and even some similarities. The priorities are quite different, and so are the budgets, but the InfoSec industry's overview at the basic level doesn't really change much.

We often wonder how technology and cybersecurity programs are researched, decided, and implemented within the government setting. In this podcast, we give a few answers and reflect on the industry and the profession's future.

This conversation is connected to our partnership with ISSA International as we continue to bring to life Official ISSA International Podcast on ITSPmagazine. We find ourselves able to have this extended Luminaries Series chat with our long-time friend, Mark Weatherford. Join us as, this time, we analyze things through the lens of our The Cyber Society channel.
