Security concerns about Healthcare.gov are giving new prominence to information security, at the same time private-sector companies like Target and others are suffering from cyber breaches.  Earl Crane, Senior Principal at Promontory Financial Group and former Director for Federal Cybersecurity Policy on the National Security Staff at the Executive Office of the President, says 2014 should be the year security becomes a priority in the C-suite of your organization.  He explained why, and told me why resiliency is a critical element of that prioritization.
