Brad Medairy, an executive vice president at Booz Allen Hamilton, has said that government and commercial organizations should implement continuous risk assessment programs to secure digital environments against cybersecurity threats.

He told SIlicon Angle in an interview published Friday the company works with clients to help them manage technological efficiency through baseline, tool configuration and security operations center management efforts.

"There's a lot of tools, a lot of technologies," Medairy said.

"There's no silver bullet, and our clients are asking a couple of fundamental questions. One, “˜How effective am I?' and then, “˜Once I'm effective, how can I be more efficient with my cybersecurity spend?"

Medairy added he thinks that stakeholders recognize the potential impacts of threat actors and attack factors on their businesses and that organizations need to secure their operational technology environments.
