A Conversation with Dr. Costis Toregas, is the Director of the Cyber Security and Privacy Research Institute at George Washington University and is Montgomery County’s IT Advisor, and if his name looks familiar he was with PTI for some 28 years mostly as its President and CEO.
Dr. Toregas is regarded as one of the finest thought leaders in the US when it comes to technology and government. Costis speaks to the continued need for innovation in government, sheltered adoption and the reality of dissonance between policy and the speed of technological advances. The discussion looks at the current state of cyber security and how the issue of privacy fits in. Ultimately it’s all about the citizen and how local governments relates to them both in form and substance.
