FYSA = Prismatic Pieces

Submitted by: Daryl Haegley, Director, Mission Assurance & Cyber Deterrence at Dod


Expanding your pandemic reading list, “Prism” magazine specializes presenting the thoughts (and concerns) of top national security thinkers and decision-makers in mid-length articles—short enough to be accessible for people with too much to do (all of you), but long enough to present a fully fleshed-out set of topline arguments on each topic.  The editor has taken the liberty of recommending these particular articles for those with a cyber policy focus:
