Grant Schneider: National Cyber Strategy Promotes Action, Accountability

Grant Schneider, federal chief information security officer, has said the national strategy for cybersecurity aims to help federal agencies get ahead of cyber threats and advance accountability, FedScoop reported Thursday.

“It’s really a shift from [an approach] about process and policy to action and accountability,” he said Thursday at DC CyberTalks.

Schneider highlighted the need for shared services in cybersecurity, especially when it comes to addressing workforce challenges.

“We’re never going to be able to attract all the talent we need at all the agencies. We don’t want to be competing with one another,” he noted.

“So how can we do things in a more common and shared way?”
