Cybersecurity consistently tops the list of concerns that federal and state and local executives face every day. It affects their spending and their hiring.

The administration has responded to the constant rise in cyberattacks by addressing underlying issues of legacy equipment and identity management. From the President’s executive order on cybersecurity to the IT modernization strategy, the administration is moving to shore up known weaknesses while positioning agencies to meet emerging cyber threats.

Cyber protection continues to evolve from an after-the-fact function to a mission-critical component of digital modernization. In a distributed, cloud-enabled, multi-platform and highly mobile enterprise, effective cybersecurity must be woven into the fabric of an enterprise.

It is a major undertaking, shifting from a security paradigm focused on perimeter defense to a network-, application- and data-level security that’s inextricably enmeshed in the network. Among the challenges, agencies must determine how much of the lift they will shoulder and how much they will outsource to industry partners.

This event explored the challenges of bolstering cybersecurity and the technologies, policies and management strategies that agencies can use to attain their security goals. Event sessions covered a range of topics:

  • Identification and access management, including two-factor authentication
  • Protecting the universe of mobile devices
  • The impact of OMB’s new TIC policy
  • Implications of moving from Cloud First to Cloud Smart
  • Automated information security processes
  • Insider threats
  • The sophisticated hacker’s emerging techniques
  • Cyber threat hunting – how does it work?
  • Cyber workers – attain, retrain, retain
  • Trusting the digital global supply chain
