Maine's broadband boss

Maine Gov. Janet Mills on Tuesday nominated the head of Maine’s largest broadband advocacy organization to lead the state’s new broadband office. If confirmed by the state legislature, Andrew Butcher, currently the director of the Maine Broadband Coalition, would become the first president of the Maine Connectivity Authority, a state-run office Mills signed into law in June, backed by $150 million in combined federal and state recovery funding. Maine ranks as the 43rd best state for broadband access, according to the website BroadbandNow. Ryan Johnston reports.

Lessons from the states

Federal CISO Chris DeRusha said this morning that the federal government can glean many lessons from programs enacted at the state level, especially as the White House expands its attention on protecting computer networks and hardening critical infrastructure. In brief remarks to the Michigan Cyber Summit, DeRusha, who once served as that state's top cyber official, nodded to several programs he oversaw or worked with during his tenure there, including the Michigan State Police's cyber crime unit. “Though Michigan’s done a lot of big creative things, there’s a lot more you can keep doing," he said.

The burnout is real

Like other industries, cybersecurity is finding it harder to retain talent as more professionals reflect on the pandemic-induced stresses of the past two years, CyberScoop's Jeff Stone reports. Trying to fend off hackers while balancing family responsibilities — like kids having to attend school over Zoom — leads to feelings of exhaustion more often than hope. “I have burnout moments probably every quarter where I think ‘I can’t do this anymore. I don’t want to do this anymore,’" Mari Galloway, CEO and founding board member of Women’s Society of CyberJutsu, a nonprofit dedicated to building awareness about career opportunities, said during a CyberWeek event.

On cybersecurity, cities have 'a lot to learn from each other'

City cybersecurity leaders need to work much more closely together if they’re going to counter the growing threats against government and infrastructure, according to San Francisco CISO Michael Makstman. “We really have a lot to learn from each other. Cybersecurity as a discipline in government is still very new," he said during an SNG Live event. Maktsman last year co-founded the Coalition of City CISOs, which has since attracted the participation of cybersecurity chiefs from other big U.S. metropolitan areas and now, he said, is reaching out to international colleagues.
