NCF-43 What Do Politicians Need to Know About Cyber Security?


Elected Government officials are the ones making legislative decisions about privacy and security policy, so what level of understanding to they need to do their job. Today’s guest is Mayor  Herb Atchison of Westminster Colorado. Mayor Atchison is open with our host about areas he feels he understands and those where he may need for more support from experts.

We were introduced to Mayor Atchison during last year’s government officials training event held by the National Cybersecurity Center (NCC). He shares with us what he learned at the event and the valuable connections and direction he gathered to help with governing the city of Westminster. It is fitting to air this conversation now as this year’s Governor’s Cyber Symposium is just around the corner, November 1-3 of 2017.

Hear what Mayor Atchison learned at the NCC event last year. If you are an elected official, maybe this should be something to add on your calendar for this year.
