Aliya Sternstein Answers Your Cybersecurity Questions on Twitter

Ivelin Radkov/

Nextgov senior correspondent Aliya Sternstein joined public relations house Weber Shandwick for its #WSGlobalDef Tweet Chat on Friday to answer questions about the threats agencies face, the new cyber standards just released by the White House, fallout from Edward Snowden's leaks, why you need to worry about the security on your smartphone, and more.  

Sternstein has covered government technology for more than a decade and manages ThreatWatch, Nextgov's regularly updated index of cyber breaches successfully striking every sector of the globe. Our aim in creating ThreatWatch was to help identify trends and shifts in the ever evolving world of cyber threats.

On Wednesday, Feb. 19, Sternstein will sit down with Peter W. Singer, director of the Brookings Institution's Center for 21st Century Security and Intelligence, and coauthor of "Cybersecurity and CyberWar: What everyone Needs to Know," to discuss all things cyber.
