How does a new idea take root? It requires a chorus of voices who believe in the possibility.

West Point for Security

Today I published an op-ed for Fortune calling for the creation of a West Point for Cyber. 

As a security professional, I see the growing risks our businesses and government are facing each day. While the private sector absolutely has a crucial role to play in our cyber offense and defense, I also believe there is an opportunity for us to take a more unified country-first, vendor-second approach to how we defend ourselves—and our nation—against cyber terrorism.

I invite you to add your voice to mine, in whatever format you are most comfortable (social, email, conversations, etc.) to kick off a national dialogue.
