  • Taking IT to the Edge: Delivering on the Promise of IoT

    Agencies across the federal government are primed to take advantage of emerging solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT). In many cases, agencies already have countless networked devices embedded in their field operations, providing an opportunity to gain new insights and to create new services. But to realize the full benefits of IoT, agencies need to push more intelligence to the edge of their operations. In this webcast, Jeffrey Voas, a computer scientist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, will discuss steps that agencies can take to turn IoT into operational intelligence and better decisions. 10/12/2017

  • Meet CUI Compliance: What Agencies and Contractors Should Know

    The December 31, 2017 deadline for protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and complying with the NIST Special Publication 800-171 standard is fast approaching. Organizations must ensure they are protecting sensitive government information now and into the future, and are accountable for the information they process, store, and transmit in their information systems. Join us for a discussion on strategies to help federal agencies and contractors meet the main CUI requirements as established by NIST 800-171 and DFARS 252.204-7012. 10/10/2017

  • Scaling Security Workflows for Government Agencies

    For most federal agencies dealing with increased security threats, limiting machine-data collection is not an option. But faced with finite IT budgets, few agencies can continue to absorb the high costs of scaling high-end network attached storage (NAS) or moving to and expanding a block-based storage footprint. During this webcast, you’ll learn about more cost-effective solutions to support large-scale machine-data ingestion and fast data access for security analytics. 09/28/2017

  • Building a Cyber-Ready Agency

    Cybersecurity in government is more challenging than ever. Not only are cyber threats more numerous and sophisticated, but the federal enterprise is increasingly complex, defying quick fixes or simple solutions. In this webcast, Rear Adm. Danelle Barrett, Navy Cyber Security Division Director/Deputy Department of the Navy CIO, will discuss how the Navy is placing an emphasis on cybersecurity through cyber policies, workforce training, and other ways to improve its cyber posture. 09/26/2017

  • Cloud Security Evolves

    As cloud becomes an integral part of an agency’s enterprise, security becomes even more crucial. Learn how the cloud creates a new dynamic between agencies, users, and vendor partners with regards to their cybersecurity roles and responsibilities, and why there must be transparency in how these roles are carried out.

  • Give Cloud its Due

    Cloud is an integral part of an agency's modernization plan today. As agencies begin to move to modernize systems and consolidate data centers, they are looking to the cloud to improve the flexibility, efficiency, and scalability of their operations - as well as how to sustain cloud in the long term. Download this informative report focused on a recent cloud event to hear how different agencies are saying farewell to their data center, evaluating their cloud options and communicating with their team to successfully transition to the cloud.

  • Disrupt the Machine-to-Human Fight with a New Defender Lifecycle Model

    Traditional security strategies focused on prevention are no longer sufficient to defend against the increasing speed, volume and polymorphic nature of today’s cyber threats. Instead, organizations must embrace a new Defender Lifecycle Model, which shifts control and advantage from the attacker back to the defender by integrating machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and security workflow automation with a foundation of pervasive coverage.
