Recently, when members of the armed forces spoke before Congress on the government“™s cybersecurity preparedness, the Pentagon“™s top information-security official, Robert Lentz, offered this sobering statistic: Last year, DoD detected 360 million attempts to breach its networks “” up from six million just three years ago. The threat isn“™t going away, either. “I think the state of the threat is going to be many, many times worse than it is today,“ Lentz says in an exclusive interview with ExecutiveBiz. Which makes strengthening the alliance between the federal and private sectors so essential, he adds. “We must all come together and work “” not only as federal sectors “” but with the private sector to get on top of these problems “¦ it“™s really going to be a team effort,“ he says. Here Lentz offers his take on the Department of Defense“™s key areas of focus on the cybersecurity front, and how the private sector can be part of the solution. 2466
