Securing State & Local Government
Sep 23, 2020 Season 1 Episode 29
Firewalls.com/Fortinet Field CISO Jim Richberg

The need for strong cybersecurity is ever present, but the needs of specific organizations – and the challenges they face – vary. State & local government agencies are responsible for a wide variety of essential services and data. And that makes finding the right fit for securing their networks against online threats complicated. We welcome Fortinet Field Chief Information Security Officer Jim Richberg to discuss how state & local cybersecurity against the backdrop of shrinking budgets and staffing shortages is especially challenging, yet also how evolving technology is making it more & more possible.
