Building a Robust Threat Management System

The U.S. government ranks near the top of the global target list for hackers, and threats have become increasingly sophisticated. Federal executives are expected to protect their assets from millions of threats each day. As attacks have become more sophisticated, so have defenses. And cybersecurity is at the top of the priority and funding list across all areas of government.

This FCW workshop brings together government and industry to discuss how best to tackle the issues of threat management. We’ll hear case studies from agency leaders who have learned best practices in threat management, and from industry leaders who are on the cutting-edge with solutions for detecting and responding to malware, phishing and other intrusions. Discussions will include topics such as:

  • Early detection systems, and ongoing threat management systems
  • Developing intelligence for threat predictions
  • Prioritizing and responding to threats
  • Assessing vulnerabilities
  • The impact of cloud computing and FedRAMP
  • How the governmentwide CDM program fits in
  • Building the right workforce
