037 – Is the shutdown the perfect case for ISAOs and other similar orgs?

This week I discuss about how the U.S. Federal Government shutdown is affecting or at least what the perceived effect is having on cybersecurity. I raise the question do we really need US DHS or CISA to operate above a baseline capability? Is the ability or lack thereof to operate above a baseline really having a noticeable affect on the private sector or to the general public. I do believe this goes to show we need to be self reliant. This is also a perfect case for ISAOs.
