VT's Chief Information Security Officer Reporting for Duty

by

Came across this interview this morning with Vermont's Chief Information Security Officer Kris Rowley. It's interesting — not that Vermont has a chief information security officer, but that she's only been on the job for seven months. According to Rowley, "[Information] security in the state of Vermont is very young right now."  

Really? That's surprising, considering that Norwich University is on the cutting edge of cyber-warfare defense and digital security for the U.S. military and intelligence communities. Perhaps state government is finally catching up to its own private (educational) sector. Just wish Rowley didn't drop the word "stovepipe" so often. Makes it sound like our wood stoves are at risk from global terrorists.
