It’s a new year and a time when we make resolutions…which often drop off by the start of February. To keep your security resolutions for 2022, today’s show will be about enterprise security pitfalls and the areas corporations should focus on when planning their cybersecurity strategy for the year. Topics will include proper data hygiene; ransomware prevention and recovery techniques; challenges in securing a distributed workforce and the changing role of IT and containing data sprawl. We’re looking forward to keeping you informed throughout 2022!
2021 was the most active year in federal cybersecurity policy. Ever. The Biden administration used executive orders, new regulations, public/private partnerships and novel law enforcement strategies to shore up federal systems and engage with industry. Meanwhile, an otherwise active year in Congress took a hit when several major pieces of legislation like incident reporting mandates and federal cybersecurity reform were left of the NDAA. SC Media government reporter Derek B. Johnson will discuss what came out last year's flurry and what we can expect Congress to prioritize in 2022.
