Tuesday Tip Jar: The Best Advice from the Week in Government Contracting

This week, CGI Federal’s George Schindler shares the best business advice he has ever received.

Melissa Hathaway of Hathaway Global Strategies LLC emphasized how successful partnerships are important for promoting cybsersecurity:

“Targeted attacks on industry are increasing and our defensive posture remains weak.  While a sense of urgency is rising, I am afraid that we will see more partnerships emerge rather than consolidated efforts and investments across executive branch agencies or industry verticals.  We cannot afford to wait and see who will lead and who will follow.  So let’s place some wise bets and be bold and try to make one or two of these private-public partnerships successful.  We can no longer afford to fall short of operationalizing the private-public partnership and secure our Nation’s networks.”
