How can government best step up to the challenges we face from the modern cybercriminal?

A look at all of the various aspects of modern cybercrime and government. What parts of government are most at risk? As we build better and more omni-channel government services does the risk profile change? How can government use resources best to fit the ever-changing needs of the cybersecurity landscape?

Are managed security services an answer for government?

The management of cybersecurity threats is a costly game. It requires specialist personnel and specialist tools. Is the use of a third-party service in the form of a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) the way forward for government? What are the impediments to the use of an MSSP? Can an MSSP bridge the skills gap in government?
