Our reliance on digital infrastructure and the Internet makes everyone vulnerable to cybersecurity attacks. Given the importance of cybersecurity, everyone from CEOs to board members and employees must understand the nature of this threat. Although cybersecurity involves technology, managing the problem relies on people and the willingness of individuals to change their behavior.

To learn how to manage a cybersecurity program, we spoke with Gregory Touhill, director of the world-renowned CERT Division of the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute (SEI). Proactive cybersecurity strategy should be an important element of any digital transformation effort.

The conversation includes these topics:
-- On the state of cybersecurity in 2022
-- On security weakness arising from the intersection of administrative and operational systems
-- On the challenges of enterprise security
-- On the importance of prioritizing enterprise cybersecurity
-- On managing ransomware attacks
-- On creating a culture of cybersecurity
-- On the future of managing cybersecurity

At the SEI Cert Division, Greg Touhill leads a diverse group of researchers, software engineers, security analysts, and digital intelligence specialists working together to research security vulnerabilities in software products, contribute to long-term changes in networked systems, and develop cutting-edge information and training to improve the practice of cybersecurity.

Touhill was appointed by former President Barack Obama to be the first chief information security officer (CISO) of the United States government. Previously, he served in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as deputy assistant secretary in the Office of Cybersecurity and Communications. Before joining the Software Engineering Institute, he was president of Appgate Federal, a provider of cybersecurity products and services to civilian government and defense agencies.

Touhill is a 30-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force where he was an operational commander at the squadron, group, and wing levels. He served as a senior leader of military cybersecurity and information technology programs, culminating as the chief in-formation officer of the United States Transportation Command, one of the nation’s 10 combatant commands. A combat veteran, he is the recipient of numerous awards and decorations including the Bronze Star medal and the Air Force Science and Engineering Award. He retired from the Air Force with the rank of brigadier general.

He is an adjunct faculty member of the CMU Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy and the Deakin University (Australia) Centre for Cybersecurity Research and Innovation. A member of many organizational boards and committees and recipient of many awards, Touhill was recog-nized by Security Magazine as one of its Most Influential People in Security and by Federal Computer Week in the Federal 100. He is the co-author of the books Cybersecurity for Executives: A Practical Guide and Commercialization of Innovative Technologies.
