It seems like a lot, but the underlying cyber network of experts that is moving between the public and private sectors generally have a lot to offer.  The Cipher Brief wanted a better understanding of how the conversations that are happening in board rooms, hearing rooms and sometimes, backrooms are making an impact on our overall understanding of cyber threats and how to address them.
