Intelligent information management is an increasingly critical function for government agencies. Federal agencies are under pressure from all sides to fulfill technology modernization mandates, adhere to security and privacy standards, and ensure efficient and legal records management.
Cloud computing is driving dramatic change and innovation across every industry vertical. Constituent demand for more services, more convenience and more transparency at a lower cost and with lower staffing level makes this transformation even tougher for government agencies. This webinar will explain what you need to know about cloud computing, how your agency can address the transition challenge and why training and education are critical to your organization's success.
One of the main reasons systems are vulnerable is that they are either not patched or not patched quickly enough, due to the cost of system downtime that needs to be scheduled. Automating manual processes in the data center, particularly security patching, is a key factor that will allow federal agencies to meet compliance standards and keep data secure while freeing up resources for other critical tasks. An automated patching process eliminates errors by removing the human element, and strengthens overall security.
The cloud offers many benefits for government agencies and is the primary catalyst toward transformation and IT modernization. But, for many agencies, it can be tough. This webcast will address the four stages of cloud implementation: planning, migrating, managing and improving.
$18 million. That is the cost of damages stemming from the May 2019 ransomware attack on the City of Baltimore. Recent events like this demonstrate that cyber espionage is still considered one of the most dangerous threats facing the federal government.
As government agencies continue to advance their digital transformation and improve the citizen digital experience, they are moving to new platforms. A successful digital transformation, and continued compliance with federal technology update mandates, such as Cloud First and the Modernizing Government Technology Act, involves embracing multiple cloud platforms. This has a ripple effect of streamlining agency operations and presenting a new and updated digital experience for citizens. Our government agency speaker will outline how one agency moved operations to the cloud and the lessons they learned along the way.
Recent reports acknowledged numerous rogue cell sites are in use in the area meaning that sensitive government and personal information is at risk.
The administration’s Cloud Smart Strategy identifies security as a critical component of cloud-based transformation. That’s true of the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (CCIIO), a division of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. After moving operations to the cloud, its data is better protected and network systems better prepared for customer surges during open enrollment. And new, built-in system redundancies mean that recovering from a disaster will be easier than in the past. Moreover, going to the cloud means that the likelihood of a disaster is diminished.
Cloud services are fast becoming a basic feature of the modern IT toolkit. Across government, the cloud’s ubiquity and agencies’ dependence on it have grown with the adoption of web-based services, among them Office 365. Government agencies rely on the popular suite of business apps to such an extent that it’s failure would cripple operations.
“Deep Learning” Drives Advanced Cybersecurity:
Identifying and mitigating attacks from sophisticated malware requires advanced solutions, such as AI-enabled deep learning. Unlike measures that are strictly reactive, deep learning protects systems before malware is written, including emerging threats to the communications and IT supply chains.
Scalability. Improved availability. Centralized management. These are just a few of the benefits that come with migrating enterprise applications to the cloud. Yet despite the understood benefits, many agencies and departments still struggle to define the best path forward—especially when mission essential data is on the line.
Much of government work is repetitive, time-consuming and deadly boring for the people who do it. What if there were an easy way to automate responses to legislators’ questions, to answer requests from Congressional offices, to execute a budget, evaluate a policy, process citizens’ questions or prepare the rollout of a domestic policy? What if there were a way to automate the mundane?
