Core4ce CEO Jack Wilmer recently joined The Daily Scoop Podcast to discuss how the federal government and the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) can better serve each other.
Wilmer had this to say about the current threat to the DIB:

On the government’s side, we’ve got info sharing and assistance programs that have been in place for years, but I think we really have to look at refreshing those programs and seeing what we can do to take advantage of modern technology to be able to help better defend those companies against what’s a fundamentally unfair fight.
