Data breaches happen in both the private and public sector. The latest victims include the IRS, Veteran Affairs and Target. So, whom do you call when your agency is under attack? The Secret Service might not initially come to mind, but it has a long history of protecting the nation’s financial infrastructure from threats. Bill Noonan, the deputy special agent in charge of cyber operations for the Secret Service, recently testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the agency’s experience in the cyber arena. He joined Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp to further discuss the agency’s role in cyber.
