My longtime friend and colleague Charlie Cooper (@coopeydoop) suggested the following #CIOchat question a few weeks ago: "How long before CIOs lose their fears about the security in moving their data to the cloud?"

It's a good question, but I anticipated many of the CIOs in our weekly #CIOchat would respond that no one in the enterprise should ever lose their fears about security. The inference of the question as constructed is that adopting the cloud outweighs security concerns.

The stinging 133-page report from the GAO was released two days ago. So what's the problem?

Cybersecurity is the number one concern for CIOs in state security for 2015 – and no wonder. State security systems house an enormous amount of data on any number of people, organizations, and even infrastructures – but keeping your organization’s data safe is just as important.

Unlike computer worms and viruses that usually attack indiscriminately, targeted cyberattacks involve intelligent planning with respect to the chosen target or class of targets. Also evident in these attacks, is a difference in attitude: the threat agent wants to attack the victim and is willing to expend the extra effort to target them as an individual (or group).
