One theme repeated by every major Obama administration officials speaking RSA Conference 2010, the IT security conference held in early March in San Francisco, was the need for the government and business to work together to protect the nation's critical IT systems.

Among those listening to these officials was Steve Elefant, chief information officer of payment processor Heartland Payment Systems, a victim of a 2009 breach considered the largest criminal breach of card data ever, exposing information on upward of 100 million cards.

In an interview with Information Security Media Group Executive Editor Eric Chabrow, Elefant discusses the impact of the breach on Heartland's relationship with the government and other financial institutions to secure critical IT systems operated by the private sector.
