Idaho pulls new CISO out of retirement

Keith Tresh, a former state chief information security officer for California and one-time commander of the California Cybersecurity Integration Center, emerged from retirement last week to take a new role as CISO for the State of Idaho. Tresh, who had moved to Idaho in 2018 after retiring from the California state government, told StateScoop he returned to government work after souring on the consultant life. “It really wasn’t my cup of tea and I was missing being a civil servant, if you will, and serving the public and doing that kind of stuff because I’ve been a civil servant my whole life,” Tresh said. In his new job, Tresh said he wants to work closely with Idaho's universities to attract more women and minorities to the state's cybersecurity workforce. Colin Wood reports.

Virus tracking puts diner data on the menu

As it inches toward allowing businesses like restaurants to re-open amid an ongoing pandemic, Washington state is implementing new rules that will require eateries resuming dine-in service to collect data from customers and keep it for at least 30 days. COVID-19 cases have declined enough in eight rural counties that Gov. Jay Inslee is allowing restaurants in those areas to resume limited table service. But as part of the state's contact-tracing efforts to track new cases of the deadly illness, restaurants will be required to get the names names, phone numbers and email addresses of all sit-down diners and keep that information for 30 days. Washington is trying to build a 1,500-person-strong tracing workforce, but is still considering a number of new technologies that have prompted privacy concerns. Benjamin Freed has more
