It’s clear that cybersecurity concerns will dominate the IT landscape for the nation and the world in 2015.
Although Federal agencies have been focused on strengthening their networks, facilities, and data from cyber attacks for years, the aggressors are more capable, sophisticated, and motivated than ever.
