Public-Private Partnership on Cyber Security Policy – Ping Podcast – Episode 53

Episode 53: Public-Private Partnership on Cyber Security Policy

We projected some cyber security policy directions under President Biden at the beginning of 2021. But with all that’s happened since, it’s time to take stock of where things are now. For that, we welcome NextGov’s Mariam Baksh to take us through recent cybersecurity initiatives from the White House and Congress. Mariam outlines the use of public-private partnership to improve security, and whether some recent announcements constitute real progress or just talk. She also discusses the revisiting of the NIST framework, how the cyber insurance industry is involved, and recommendations from the Cyberspace Solarium Commission.

Read Mariam’s work at NextGov.

In headlines, we update the T-Mobile data breach story. And then, we discuss Apple’s relationship to privacy and how money plays a role. Finally, we learn about the latest ransomware cell to call it quits and why this keeps happening.
