Interview with Josh McCloud, Cisco National Cybersecurity Officer

We sit down with Josh McCloud to learn how great minds are thinking about the challenges of cybersecurity and what all of us can do to minimize its risk. He discusses the importance of taking a risk-centric view and incorporating Zero-Trust into an organization's approach. How everything starts with ensuring the most senior levels of the organization treat cybersecurity as a key operational risk. And how important it is to keep the Internet open.
