The recent data breaches in and hacks of major companies such as Sony, PBS, Google, WordPress and Expedia have been a hot topic in the news lately. The government-contracting industry is far from immune from such attacks, as seen with Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin becoming the latest hacking victims.
The cover story of the just-released issue of GovConExec magazine focuses on the insider threat. With so much time, energy and resources spent on protecting clients and sensitive data from outside threats, the government-contracting industry is currently focusing on malicious insiders. The story touches on the issues that come with the insider threat, such as costs to the firms, frequency, motives and ways in which companies are combating this issue.
Serco, Inc. CEO Ed Casey is featured in the new CEO Profile section and the new Soundoff section includes experts' perspective and opinions on topics such as federal IT and technology, IPv6 and security guidelines for federal IT networks.
GovConExec is published by Executive Mosaic, the parent company of ExecutiveBiz.
