Exclusive Interview: BMC’s Jon Powers on SecOps and What is Needed to Achieve It

Each month DLT’s GovIT podcast series explores a different technology, what it is and how it can help public sector organizations achieve their monetization goals and accomplish their missions. Recently, our host, Tom Temin, sat down with BMC Software's Jon Powers for a Q&A about security operations or SecOps for the public sector.
