Robert Bigman, former CISO at the CIA and founder of 2BSecure, discusses the need for dedicated cybersecurity personnel in the White House and the growing issue of fake ransomware.

Congressman Ted Lieu is concerned about cybersecurity risks at the White House after several officials charged with securing White House systems resigned. Robert Bigman, former CISO at the CIA and founder of 2BSecure, says that these systems require specialized workers to ensure that every end of the system is properly encrypted.

 

“Cybersecurity is at its best when it’s at the point where the systems are. You need to be in there instructing the people who are using the systems, you have to look at the systems they are using, make sure that the mobile devices are secure, and making sure the computer networks they are using are secure,” Bigman said. “It always works best when it’s at the point of attack, you have to be there with the system admins who are configuring the systems, setting the security policies and making sure they are doing it right way.”
