Alex Chapin, vice president, DOD and Intelligence with McAfee, discusses the Pentagon’s CVR environment, in which the Department of Defense moved 1.5 million users into the cloud for collaboration tools.

Cloud isn’t the only modernization change causing leaders to rethink security, Chapin says. With IoT devices becoming more prevalent there needs to be a clear strategy around protecting endpoints, too.
