I spent yesterday morning at the State information security conference. Governor Walker (video stream coming) announced an increased focus on cybersecurity and asked for each department to appoint a Chief Security Officer that will be part of the State Information Security Council. She was followed by Rob Clyde, CTO of Symantec, who gave an excellent presentation. While hunting around, I found these video / audio streams of several recent conferences that have some interesting information on current trends. Simple registration is required.
Yesterday afternoon, we signed off on the Omnilink installation at UCAN. I learned that Indiana and Ohio are using the same technology to support their statewide wireless initiatives. Indiana's Project Hoosier SAFE-T is at a similar stage and is being coordinated between all levels of government. Here's a map of their current and planned implementation. The terrain makes the task very different from Utah where we have the mountains to deal with.
