Supersizing security

Blyth knew she needed more funding to protect state assets. Furthermore, she also knew legislators needed more information if she expected them to support cybersecurity.

Read how CISO Debbi Blyth connected the dots for stakeholders to secure a smarter investment and raise the bar (in a supersized way!) for Colorado cybersecurity.
