Virtual Q&A: Cybersecurity and Risk Management

As the former chief risk officer for the state of North Carolina, Maria Thompson is an expert on working to manage and mitigate cyber threats. She has become a prominent national voice on the issue of cyber resilience in the public sector. Now, as the cybersecurity leader for state and local government at Amazon Web Services (AWS), Thompson is focused on helping government organizations protect their hybrid cloud environments from phishing, ransomware, and other increasingly sophisticated attacks.

In this interview, she discusses how agencies can reduce risks in a hybrid cloud environment, how to respond to a breach, and how to navigate the increasingly complex world of cybersecurity insurance.
