#150 – Sam Bushell – Program Manager – BAE Systems, Inc
Sam discusses security concerns for Department of Defense customers. Sam defines the role of a program manager, both in IT and the cyber domain. They are developing new technologies and next generation systems as well as working with legacy systems. Sam covers both government contracting and commercial enterprise. Cyber concerns reach all aspects of everyday life, and Sam discusses how they help leverage what they learn to improve cyber security postures for the government as well as businesses. Sam stresses having a wholistic understanding of how things are interconnected. Use technical debt as a means to improve cyber operations and invest in long term flexibility. Don’t just focus on short term strategies to mitigate immediate threats. Using too rigid of a silo of operations can hurt long term viability.
