Russia's invasion of Ukraine might be giving Beijing cyber ideas. California is reckoning with a firearms data exposure. And the Pentagon is shuffling its AI oversight structure. This is CyberScoop for July 5.

China eyes Ukraine invasion's cyber vector

Beijing is certainly paying close attention to how the cyberwarfare component of Russia's invasion of Ukraine is playing out, cyber experts and China watchers say. It could inform how a possible invasion of Taiwan unfolds. Among the lessons? Strike quickly, pick targets that would cripple the enemy early on and rely on attack methods that never have been observed in public. China is also probably noticing the level of U.S. involvement in the cyber conflict. Tim Starks and AJ Vicens team up for the analysis.

California firearms dashboard leaked personal information of 200,000 gun owners

The personal information of every concealed carry weapon holder in California was exposed last week following an update to the state’s firearms data dashboard that was meant to improve transparency and encourage data-sharing. The California Department of Justice acknowledged the error, which compromised the name, date of birth, gender, race, driver’s license number, address and criminal history of every registered concealed carry license holder in the state, affecting about 200,000 people. The department said data dating back a decade across a variety of databases was affected, including its assault weapon registry, handguns certified for sale, dealer record of sale, firearm safety certificate and gun violence restraining order dashboards. Colin Wood has the story at StateScoop.


Pentagon elevates key AI governance body

Tucked into the Pentagon’s new, broad plan to operationalize artificial intelligence responsibly across the department’s sprawling enterprise is a clear elevation in seniority of its primary mechanism for AI governance. The Chief Digital and AI Office’s CDAO Governing Council — a 4-star level governance body run by this newly established office that falls under the deputy defense secretary — has replaced the former AI Executive Steering Group, which was a 3-star level governance body led by the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center JAIC, according to the Responsible Artificial Intelligence Strategy and Implementation Pathway. “For any business that we want to do on behalf of the department, that’s our place to get out, to collaborate and to really get the feedback from all the different stakeholders we need in the organization before we bring that to the deputy [secretary of defense],” Margaret Palmierei, deputy chief digital and AI officer, told FedScoop last week. Brandi Vincent reports.


Exclusive interviews from Gov Identity Summit 2022

Identity underpins every public sector priority today, and identity modernization unleashes the full potential of digital government. Last month, public sector leaders discussed the urgency of identity modernization and how cloud-smart identity accelerates zero trust adoption, strengthens national defense, fights fraud and improves customer experiences.
