In this show, he tells us who the real innovators are in the Cyber Security space and he talks about the importance of collaboration and trusted relationships between the public sector, the private sector, and academia in addressing the worst cyber security threats we face today.

Mr. Rodriguez provides his opinion on what the worse threats to our national security are, what we need to do to address them, and what it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur in the very competitive cyber security space. Host George Rettas also gets into the issues over cyber security budgets being so regulatory driven and he asks Mr. Rodriguez how we transform from a budget cycle process that is so regulatory driven to a much more effective process of investing resources to mitigate material risks and produce value for our businesses.
