Social Media and the Threat to CybersecurityCISO of Maricopa County, Arizona on Strengthening Election Security
"Social media is probably the newest and most impactful thing that we've seen from a cybersecurity perspective at Maricopa County," says its CISO, Lester Godsey. The only response to misinformation and disinformation campaigns, he says, is to use the same platform and respond with the facts.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Godsey discusses:
- How social media is affecting the threat landscape;
- How Maricopa County is monitoring the social media threat to security;
- How to incorporate social media into threat intel programs.
Godsey has over 26 years of higher education and local government IT experience. He has spoken at local, state and national conferences on telecommunications, project management, cybersecurity and data and has taught at the collegiate level for over 12 years in the areas of technology, business, project management and cybersecurity.
