Ari Schwartz, managing director of cybersecurity services at Venable, discusses the new Department of Homeland Security risk management center, and the effect the Homeland Security Supply Chain Act would have on contractors.


During Tuesday’s Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity Summit, the agency announced that they were creating a new risk management center. The new organization will research threats to American institutions, and warn industry members of potential cyber-attacks.  Banks, electric utilities, and communications firms are among the companies that DHS wishes to help protect.   “What they are trying to do is pull in the private sector to be with government and pass information extremely important for being successful in cyber security. We often think that government can do it on its own. That’s really not the case in cybersecurity. We need the private sector there. Private sector can’t do it on their own either, they need government information and government resources to do it,” said Ari Schwartz, managing director of cybersecurity services at Venable. “Co‑locating has been successful in other areas, and they want to bring this beyond cybersecurity. They want this just to be a general threat center that can deal with these issues, both physical and cyber.”
