The state of Vermont is preparing to implement new rules that encourage communities to take steps to reduce future flood damage in exchange for more money to help them recover.

Starting in October, Vermont communities that have met four flood-preparedness criteria will be eligible to be reimbursed for 12.5 percent of the local cost of disaster repairs after the Federal Emergency Management Agency has paid its 75 percent share.

Most communities have yet to meet all the requirements, although 90 communities have only one more step to qualify.

However, hosting enterprise data in the cloud can make intrusion detection more difficult – how can enterprise security leaders team up with other departments to keep aware of cyber risks and traffic, and physical and data compliance during the virtual transition? How can CISOs and CSOs discuss cyber threats with the C-Suite to get the resources they need? And how can the proper infrastructure test and verify possible malicious attacks?
