At a recent meeting of the IT Sector Coordinating Council, the new U.S. Government’s Chief Information Security Officer, Chris DeRusha, welcomed a question about the extent of redundant and conflicting cybersecurity regulations that impair both state and local governments and the private sector from efficiently addressing cyber threats. Mr. DeRusha told the Council that he has long been “passionate” about the need to streamline
cybersecurity regulations dating back to his days as the Chief Information Officer for the State of Michigan.
