Cloud Computing: Serving the Integrated Enterprise

Mobility and an array of related technologies have turned agencies into de facto distributed enterprises, with employees expecting to access data and services from wherever they need to work, whether on the road, at home, or even just across campus. Fortunately, cloud makes it possible for agencies to extend the enterprise without compromising on security or manageability. In this webcast, Patrick Stingley, CTO for the Bureau of Land Management at the Department of the Interior, will discuss how this can be done. In particular, he will talk about how to architect the enterprise to take full advantage of cloud capabilities and realize significant cost-savings.

Beyond the Cyber Sprint: An Enterprise Approach to User Authentication

For years, cyber experts have warned that user authentication often is the weakest link in an organization’s cybersecurity strategy. The problem? A continuing reliance on the password, which is easily compromised by even the most rudimentary cyber-attacks. But the recent spate of high-profile data breaches has made it clear that better security measures are needed. Federal CIO Tony Scott drove home that point in a July 31 blog post, saying that requiring the use of strong authentication is “one of the most significant steps any organization can take to reduce the risk of adversaries penetrating networks and systems.” In this webcast, Paul Grassi, Senior Standards and Technology Advisor, National Institute of Standards and Technology will discuss how agencies can move beyond an over-reliance on the password and make strong authentication an integral component of their cybersecurity strategy.
