Jim Edman, who’s served as South Dakota’s chief information security officer since 2009 and worked for the state government for nearly four decades, will step down next week as he prepares to join CISA as one of its new statewide coordinators, he told StateScoop yesterday. Edman, who started in state government in 1984 as an IBM mainframe programmer, will now be CISA's point person in South Dakota, connecting local public- and private-sector entities with the agency's cybersecurity services. "That could be municipal governments, banks, hospitals, a hardware store or restaurant. If you’re going to have an online presence, you need to be able to protect that environment," he said. Benjamin Freed reports.

Cities: not dead, actually

The New York City Economic Development Corporation announced yesterday it's teaming up with economic development groups in Berlin, London and Paris to launch a challenge for innovators in the four cities to come up with new digital tools to boost small and independent businesses, especially artistic or creative enterprises, as they recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. People from any industry, though, can now submit applications with ideas for new “technological platforms, digital tools, in-person or virtual gatherings, markets, or festivals, or some other structures or approaches," with two winners from each city to be selected later this year. Ryan Johnston has more.

But streamlining IAM across applications would also help reduce overall operating costs, he says. Listen to the full interview with Shah.
