Tony Coulson, executive director of the Cybersecurity Center at Cal State San Bernardino, was interviewed for an article about security executives who are increasingly seeking to outsource their enterprise security tasks, driven partly by the growing complexity of the work and the resulting challenges in keeping pace. The rising use of managed security service providers (MSSPs) is significant.
Since they have broader experiences, many MSSPs provide a thorough knowledge of varying state, national and international regulations. "That's the business of the right provider," said Coulson, executive director of the Cybersecurity Center housed in Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration at CSUSB.
Such service providers also have better access to talent. "Oftentimes, enterprise service providers are more capable in being able to hire cybersecurity talent, and they have partnerships and can reach into colleges and universities," Coulson explained. "Considering the [skills] gap in needed cybersecurity workers, it might be the only way an organization can get needed talent."

Brian Levin, director of Cal State San Bernardino’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, was among the experts interviewed for a segment on the Christmas Day bombing in Nashville, Tenn.
Many details surrounding the Christmas Day bombing in downtown Nashville remain unclear, including the bomber’s motive and any possible ties to extremist groups. So far, the FBI has not labeled the incident an act of domestic terror. But the bombing has renewed people’s concerns about the rise of domestic terrorism, and the proliferation of racist ideology by white supremacists.
Experts, including Levin, say that includes a special concern over individual actors who may not be associated with a specific ideology.
Levin calls these extremists “wild cards” who aren’t necessarily attached to a larger group or movement.
“We have folks who are online more … gun sales have gone up, the percentage of people saying that violence is OK, political polarization, all this kind of fragmentation creates these ticking time bombs,” Levin said. “But unlike in the past, when there was a hierarchical group, now they dine at a buffet where they take a variety of ideologies, some of which seem to be conflicting with each other.
