Are you concerned about cybersecurity? You should be.
We read of Russian meddling in our last election. We hear about ransomware attacks bringing large and small organizations to a standstill. Meanwhile, countless denial-of-service attacks seek to interfere with our favorite social media apps and services.
Just last week we learned of widespread cyber hacking of our nuclear plants and power grid. And, how many times in the last year have you gotten an email that is clearly designed to steal your personal information?
Last week, I asked Richard Levick, chief executive of the Washington public relations firm Levick, Andres Franzetti, chief strategy officer of Risk Cooperative, a D.C.-based risk, strategy and insurance consultancy, and Brian Finch, a partner of the law firm Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, to join me on What’s Working in Washington to discuss cyber threats. It was a very illuminating conversation.
