With agencies making increasing investments in big data, information sharing and other data-driven technologies, government data centers are growing in size and complexity. As might be expected, agencies are responding by also increasing their investment in compute power, storage and other aspects of their IT infrastructure. Ann Barron-DiCamillo, Director of the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT), will offer insights into how agencies can ensure that they keep pace with their growing cybersecurity requirements.
Mark E. Krzysko, Deputy Director of Enterprise Information within the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics shares his ideas in using big data to develop sound DoD investment strategies. This webcast will show how to develop an information-driven approach to meeting budget challenges head on.
In this webcast, Ron Ross, a Fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and one of the most influential experts on cybersecurity in the federal government, will discuss five keys to building resiliency into systems from the beginning – making security a by-product of good design and development practices not an add-on or afterthought.
Over the last several years, government agencies have been working steadily to consolidate their data centers, with the hopes of reducing the cost and improving the efficiency of their operations. But consolidation itself will bring only limited gains. The real benefits of consolidation will be realized only when agencies use it as a springboard to modernize and optimize the enterprise.
This webcast will examine the building blocks of the data center of the future – the IT solutions and strategies that will enable agencies to take full advantage of economies of scale and deliver a more robust and secure set of IT services.
This exclusive interview explores how to make the most of technology while defending Federal information and networks from the serious and persistent threats we face as a nation.
