Every American organization — in the public and private sector — has been or will be hacked, and they’re infected with malware, says Jack Blount, president & CEO at INTRUSION, Inc., and former CIO at the United States Department of Agriculture.

Blount’s assertion is backed up by some of the nation’s top cyberwarfare and cybersecurity experts, and Fortune 500 chief information security officers (CISOs), in a roundtable discussion which will air later this month on the Cybercrime Radio podcast channel.
