\u00a0 The National Association of State CIOs (NASCIO) released a great new video this week to help in selling the security message. The video addresses why securing government technology is a critical concern in the digital world.\u00a0 While this video is intended for state and local government CIOs, it can also help everyone in government and even the private sector to sell key messages regarding security. It is targeted at senior business managers.\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 The video entiled: At Risk! Securing Government in a Digital World is a product \u00a0of NASCIO\u2019s Security and Privacy Committee and IT Security Video Work Group. NASCIO\u2019s website said, \u201cIt is intended to help state CIOs raise awareness of the need for continuous and sufficient levels of resources dedicated to IT security in order to combat the current and emerging threats.\u201d\u00a0\u00a0 Here\u2019s a quote from John Gillispie, Iowa\u2019s CIO and NASCIO\u2019s current President, regarding the video: \u201cWe are pleased to offer this very timely and critically important resource for state CIOs and other state leaders to help them strengthen the business case for IT security in their states.\u00a0 On behalf of NASCIO, we extend our thanks to the members of NASCIO\u2019s Security and Privacy Committee, the IT Security Video Work Group and the ten corporate members whose sponsorship made this video a reality.\u00a0 Products like this are only possible with the involvement and support of our members.\u201dNASCIO is able to produce these products through the help of corporate sponsors. On this project, the sponsors included: CA, Inc., CIBER, EMC, Motorola, NIC, Red Hat, SunGard Availability Services, Symantec, Unisys, and Verizon Business Security Solutions powered by Cybertrust.In our new video-rich world where YouTube reruns are played regarding\u00a0Presidential debates, this new media is very helpful to CSOs to get our messages out with pictures. We all need help, and NASCIO does a great job with all their video products. (They have another great video on diaster recovery at their website.)Truth in advertising \u2013 yes, I did help with this project and a short clip of yours truly is in the video, but the credit for this great product goes to Mary Gay Witmer and Doug\u00a0Robinson at NASCIO headquarters.
