In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Schneider discusses:

  • Filling gaps in SBOM readiness;
  • Whether Congress will legislate reforms to the Federal Information Security Management Act;
  • The impact of the "Great Resignation" on the cyber workforce.

Prior to Venable, Schneider served as the U.S. deputy federal CISO and the U.S. federal CISO and as senior director for cybersecurity policy on the White House National Security Council. Before that, he served for seven years as chief information officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency.
