Earlier this year, Government Technology attended the Black Hat 2013 Conference, which ran from July 27 to August 1 in Las Vegas. We asked cybersecurity professionals for their opinions on some of today’s most pressing security issues.

In the last episode of our Black Hat video series, we asked professionals about the evolving role of the chief security officer in general. In this one, we asked them if the new world of risk management is different in the public sector than it is in the private sector.
