Re: Focus On The Real Risk
I hope the SEC is more knowledgeable about cybersecurity risk than they were in 2008 when our financial industry collapsed. Somehow, I think not.

Who at the SEC is going to review the answers to questions like that.

Focus On The Real Risk
The SEC should leave cyber-security to other organizations and agencies and focus on the real risks of financial malfeseance taking down the entire economy again. I'm more worried about that than hackers.
