Fed Cyber Issues

As transition looms, what state is the federal IT infrastructure in, in terms of cyber security? This week on Federal Security Spotlight, host Tom Temin talks with Bill Jackson. Jackson is a senior writer at Government Computer News, and author of the CyberEye blog. He is one of the people most in tune with federal cyber issues.

During the interview, Bill discusses the major threats facing government networks in the next 12 months, how they have morphed, and what the best responses should be. One surprise: As agencies rush headlong into virtualization, they might be unwittingly creating a new security challenge.
