Symantec Government Symposium Redefines the Cyber Conversation
A renewed push needed for a rethink – and a redefinition – how to approach cyber security One of the long-standing tenants of cyber security is the belief that the attackers have an advantage. That makes sense as cyber security, for the most part, has been a reactionary process that identifies an attack once it happens and then makes adjustments to stop it from happening again. That process is no longer good enough for Jeanette Manfra, assistant secretary for the Office of Cyber Security and Communications in the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) National Protection and Programs Directorate. As Manfra said during her keynote presentation at the Symantec Government Symposium, she believes government needs to develop deep partnerships with the private sector on cyber security that can “create an environment where the defender has an advantage.” She acknowledged this is a rarity in cyber security, but also that federal agencies need to look beyond simply being reactive to cyber security incidents.
