Cybersecurity is largely about identifying vulnerabilities and risky practices, ideally before hackers have the chance to find and exploit them. I was quoted extensively, along with experts from Deloitte, Schellman & Co., Sikich and Markel, in a story for SC Magazine on how data and the supply chain drive hidden network threats.

When a city or company is hacked, its leaders usually don’t face the press. They hide behind a statement and news of the attack gradually emerges over days or weeks. They don’t want to field questions about what they would have, could have, should have done. Earlier in September 2020 when Hartford Public Schools canceled the first day of classes while the city recovered from a cyber attack, the mayor, school superintendent, police chief and head of IT for the city held a joint press conference.
