TYSONS CORNER, VA, June 14, 2016 — Chris Smith, vice president of technology at AT&T‘s (NYSE: T) global public sector solutions business, believes teaming between industry and federal agencies with limited budgets for information technology will help drive cybersecurity efforts, ExecutiveBiz reported Friday.

Channelnomics reported Wednesday that Smith has said managed services from commercial vendors can address cyber needs even as agencies face small IT budgets.

“Spending $1 for cyber security and getting the benefit of perhaps $2 or $3 because of organizations that are continuously improving in this area — that’s going to take them that much further down the road to deliver on their mission with the limited amount of resource they have, ” he told the publication.
