Industry Leadership of the Year
Private-sector partners can be major conduits for building collaborative cybersecurity strategies, says Matthew Schneider, VP of SLED at Palo Alto Networks. Especially with the inflow of funding from the federal government, state agencies need to prioritize visibility, infrastructure optimization and actionable security, he said during a Scoop News Group event last month. State leaders also need to be ready for cyberattacks coming as a result of the current conflict in Ukraine, Schenider said at the event. If a successful attack occurs, leaders need to be prepared with a strong recovery plan, he said.
