Show Notes

Today we're talking cybersecurity with Meredith Ward, Director of Policy & Research at the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO). We examine NASCIO and NASPO's new joint publication, “Buyer Be Aware…Integrating Cybersecurity into the Acquisition Process," which addresses steps state governments should take to ensure cybersecurity is an integral part of the acquisition process. Meredith, Amanda, and I briefly examine NASCIO and NASPOs relationship, the relationship of the CIO and CPO, and why cybersecurity is important to the state procurement office.
