Computer information systems (CIS) majors had the opportunity to gain insights from an industry veteran about the ongoing opportunities and challenges facing organizations in managing cyber programs. Former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) executive Paul A. Graver, now vice president and client executive with CACI International Inc., visited Showker Hall on March 27, presenting his experiences on “Managing Enterprise IT From the C-Suite.” Graver, who spent over 30 years with the CIA, emphasized that not all systems or processes are free from vulnerabilities. Despite the best laid security plans, they ultimately will be compromised at some point. The key, he said, is to stay innovative and as always, to make sure to hire the right people who are capable of achieving the organization’s mission.
