FBI Director Christopher Wray spoke at a conference last month on the importance of ever-closer public-private cooperation on cybersecurity. I think there is an emerging model of public-private coordination that we've never seen before, and it's no longer the traditional 'arms length/lowest price/commodity-like relationship government has historically had with vendors.
This new model is challenging our current public procurement processes and standards, and will no doubt be a difficult adjustment. However, we have to figure it out to deal with our increasingly complex challenges (like cybersecurity) and to continue to provide effective citizen services.
What examples are you seeing or developing? I'd love to hear what you're doing on this topic.
