Bob will answer questions such as:
What critical infrastructure is covered by the Executive Order?
How has the threat landscape evolved in recent years and how have adversaries changed their strategies and attack vectors to focus on critical infrastructure systems and assets?
What is the purpose of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and who will use it? Is its application mandatory or voluntary for Federal agencies?

News and social media corporations were rocked last month by the discovery of intensive hacking by a unit of the Chinese Army. This week, The Nation reports that a similar hacking campaign is being employed against progressive organizations by US-based hackers.
Our guest this week is MOMocrat and cybersecurity expert Sarah Granger. She says that news like this does not surprise her.
"We've been having more and more of these notable companies being hacked in various ways over the past five years," Sarah says. "We're at a point where we really have to deal with this on a large scale." She estimates the cost to the global economy at over $300 billion annually in lost data.
The White House and Congress are responding with new bills aimed at combating the problem - but citizen advocacy groups worry that government efforts will overreach into an invasion of privacy.
And government is only one of three levels where we need to pick up our cybersecurity efforts, says Sarah, who is a fellow and co-chair of the cybersecurity group at the Truman National Security Project. Corporations and individuals are also at risk.
MOMocrats Cynthia Liu and Donna Schwartz Mills will also talk about this week's news from the progressive POV.
